Ken Mumford - Colin Pidgeon.
I went to Kemble hoping to photograph 6233 being watered!
 I arrived around 1140 at Kemble. Quite a few folk there! Tanker was in car park adjacent to platform1 [the London-bound one]. Theory was that the water pipes were to be put across the two tracks!!
 Why wasn't the tanker parked where the Tetbury branch trains once waited? Because the gate leading to that area was locked and 'RAILTRACK' had the key.
 Someone said that 6233 was still at Challow whilst another said that there was a water tanker at Callow [or Wantage Road] and that 6233 had gone past it!
 Tanker later moved from where it was to the car park adjacent to platform 2 [the Cheltenham bound one]. Driver got the hoses out.
 A southbound IET to Paddington was delayed 13 minutes - the lady announcer said 'due to trespassers on the line.'
 A Cheltenham bound iET stopped a Kemble, then proceded onwards.
 I then checked to see how things were with the water tanker - there were no hoses now out and soon after the water tanker was being driven away!
 Another Paddington bound iET arrived at platform 1, then suddenly there was a shout concerning 6233 speeding toward the station.
 .6233 came storming through with plenty of speed and steam. At the rear a class 47 was working hard. It was so sudden that all I got was photo 2!
