BR 9F 2-10-0 92203 Black Prince starts a train from Toddington Station on the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway. The driver had opened the cylinder drain cocks to eject any water that had condensed in the cylinders and had given out clouds of steam. Having closed the cocks the loco emerges from the steam in quite a spectacular manner.

A real classic particularly with WR reporting numbers which makes it fairly rare too
