Update 579. 46233 on The Night Owl at Stafford, 29/03/12

46233 heads for Crewe on a loaded test run from Derby, with 47760 at the rear of the train. After the boiler certificate expired in November 2010, the Duchess was taken out of service for a heavy general overhaul. It was back in steam towards the end of 2011 and had a successful main line test run 2 days before this test run.
