158726 Loth 7 October 2007

158726 crosses over the Loth Burn, near the site of Loth station (between Helmsdale and Brora) with the 11:56 Wick to Inverness First ScotRail service on 7 October 2007. Although a very photogenic spot, it is very difficult to hear trains approaching here due to the waterfalls in the burn below, and as you can't see any further than the start of the cutting visible in the background here, I was waiting anxiously for this train to appear, hoping that I would fire the shutter at just the right time to place the train centrally on the bridge. I certainly wasn't going to get it wrong, as this is the only southbound train on the line on a Sunday! Luckily I managed to get it just right, but I was certainly glad I had the wideangle lens with me!
