1800 Hailes 2 January 1995

With the very last rays of the setting sun tingeing the exhaust pink, and a little Christmas snow still lying on the ground, Hunslet 0-6-0ST 1800 Robert Nelson No.4 approaches Hailes on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway with the 15:30 Toddington to Winchcombe 'Mince Pie Special' on 2 January 1995. The use of a 200mm lens was not only to compress the perspective and make the exhaust look more impressive, but it was necessary, as the track in the immediate foreground was in shade due to the low angle of the sun.
