47803 Eckington 19 June 1989

47803 Woman's Guild crosses the River Avon at Eckington on 19 June 1989 with the 1V62 16:18 Manchester Piccadilly to Plymouth InterCity service, which it would have worked from Birmingham New Street. Although the original 6X7 transparency looks pretty sharp, it's in situations like this were I would have liked the Pentax 6x7 to have had a 1/2000sec shutter speed. I'm not sure how reliable it would have been though, had Pentax ever managed to engineer it, because there were often problems of uneven exposure at the 1/1000sec setting!
