66032 Patchway 11 December 2004

Catching the last rays of the setting sun, 66032 climbs out of Patchway Tunnel with the 6G81 14:36 Machen to Westbury Yard Hanson stone train on 11 December 2004. Note that in the background the two lines are on different gradients, the difference in level become quite marked at the two single line tunnels. This view clearly illustrates the difficulty of railway photography in the winter. Although there are only a few low bushes on the lineside, at this time off the afternoon even they start to shade part of the train.
