60040 Ollerton 12 December 2009

Class 60 sunset? Running over an hour late, 60040 The Territorial Army Centenary passes Ollerton in near darkness on 12 December 2009 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z60 14:30 Tuxford to Westbury 'Pye Bridge Pie-Man' railtour. The assembled photographers had to watch the fine evening light gradually disappear, and indeed some had understandably given up after the sun had set! Prior to setting the sun had tinted the clouds in the background pink, but such was the lack of light that this picture was taken at 1/500sec f2.8 at ISO 3200.
