1001 Eastleigh 21 March 2009

As the last of the sunlight fades away, 1001 with Class 202 S60116 Mountfield leading rounds the curve from the Romsey line and approaches Eastleigh with the Hastings Diesels Ltd 1Z85 16:11 Salisbury to Hastings 'Wiltshire Warrior' railtour on 21 March 2009. This spot was chosen as not only is it a clearly identifiable location but it is also about the only place where the sun would be on the front of the train. If it had been running any later the shadow of the Lidl supermarket which is just out of shot to left would have caused problems, even though the light was getting so weak.
