54261 & 53978 Plumley 12 March 1990

Chester set 274 (54261 & 53978) arrives at Plumley with the 08:24 Chester to Warrington Central service on 12 March 1990. Someone has obviously forgotten to change the destination blind, as it still shows Chester! I would not normally take a picture like this with the horizon approximately half way up the frame, as this generally looks badly composed. The well known photographic 'rule of thirds' means the horizon should generally be near the top of the frame, or if there is a particularly interesting sky, near the bottom,. However, in this case the tall silver birch tree on the right meant that for once the rule had to be broken!
