60040 Quainton Road 27 June 1995

Even near the Summer Solstice it is very difficult to take pictures clear of shadows at 21:00. Such is the case here as 60040 Brecon Beacons passes through Quainton Road station with the 6A71 19:25 Northolt to Calvert binliner on 27 June 1995. Although the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre's signal box and signal gantry are well lit, unfortunately most of the station isn't. However, this was the only way to record this unusual view of a mainline freight train passing through the middle of a preservation centre.
