1497 Battramsley (Milking Pound Bottom) 22 May 2010

There is plenty of gorse near the Lymington Branch, so it was easy to get this artistic picture at Milking Pound Bottom, near Battramsley on 22 May 2010, as Class 421 3-CIG 1497 Freshwater heads south with the 18:29 train from Brockenhurst. Despite the fact that there were lots of photographers out to record the final day of slam door operation, there were so many different viewpoints in this area, and the photographers were so widely scattered, that I have managed to get a broadside view without including any of them!
