40145 Spetchley 4 June 2005

In failing light, at exactly 21:00 on 4 June 2005, the Pathfinder Tours 1Z53 16:54 Holyhead to Bristol Temple Meads 'Whistling Slater' railtour passes Spetchley on the last leg of its journey. Some idea of how dark it was can be judged from the brightness of the marker lights and the fact that ISO 1600 was necessary in order to use the required 1/1000sec shutter speed. Despite the poor conditions, I waited for this tour purely because my route home from North Wales was across the bridge in the background, so no next extra mileage was involved in getting the picture!
