59101 Great Cheverell 9 April 1999

59101 Village of Whatley rounds the curve at Great Cheverell with the 6V18 12:39 Hither Green to Whatley Hanson stone empties on 9 April 1999. Note the mixture of ARC and Hanson liveries amongst the wagons. This picture demonstrates one of the pitfalls of using a Pentax 6x7 rollfilm camera and ISO 100 film. Although the loco and front part of the train is pin sharp, there is not enough depth of field on a 200mm lens to cover the background. I suppose some people would say it throws the subject into sharp focus (excuse the pun), but personally I would have liked to had the option for a little more depth of field, 35mm style.
