60019 Spetchley 16 June 2004

It is just after 21:00 on a mid-summer evening and the sun is just approaching the horizon as 60019 Pathfinder Tours 30 Years of Railtouring 1973-2003 passes Spetchley with the 6V37 12:59 Lackenby to Llanwern steel train. The date is 16 June 2004, only a few days away from the longest day, which is why it was just possible to take the picture, even though only the side of the loco and the tops of the trees are actually getting any sun. Spetchley is the ideal location for late evening pictures such as this, as nothing at all shades the line.
