Having spent neary seven years on loan to the SVR, 769 returned to the DFR quite by chance when a keenly priced tranport opportunity arose. Pictured at Lydney Jcn. on 13/3/10 not long after arriving, the braking system is in need of servicing and having it 'back home' should speed up the process. The loco has already been o/o/s since Oct/09. (Photo B.Thomas)
