47805 Kings Sutton 5 November 2009

Despite the poor weather on 5 November 2009, I ventured out to Kings Sutton to photograph the 6Z48 13:05 Burton-on-Trent to Dollands Moor Colas Rail steel empties. Not only is the traffic about to finish, but the fact that a single blue Class 47 was scheduled to work with a lengthy train of fifteen wagons was definitely not to be missed! It was virtually dark by the time 47805 Talisman passed through Kings Sutton station, resulting in this picture being taken at ISO 1600 with the lens wide open.
