47063 Compton Beauchamp 16 May 1988

Golden evening light at Compton Beauchamp on 16 May 1988. 47063 heads east with the 6O84 14:30 Velindre Tinplate Works to Dover Town, conveying tin-plated steel coil for export via the Dover Train Ferry. The ultimate destination would be the Sosek Fabrike works in Belgrade. The very poor technical quality of this picture is due not so much that it was taken with the Canon 100mm lens wide open at f2.8, but more to do with the fact that I was experimenting with Ektachrome 64 film, which was nothing like as good as my usual Kodachrome 64.
