92214 Toddington 31 May 2016

Photographs of steam locos taken from the rear are usually unsatisfactory because of the tender, but what if the tender is removed? The tender of 9F 2-10-0 92214 has just been separated from the loco in Toddington car park on 31 May 2016, prior to the loco being collected by a low loader, and taken to the Epping & Ongar Railway, for their steam gala. The loco had been visiting the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway for their 'Cotswold Festival of Steam' over the May Bank Holiday weekend. 92214 is incorrectly wearing lined BR green. The only 9F to wear this colour scheme was the final loco of the class, and the last steam loco to be built by BR, 92220 Evening Star.
