66150 Little Haresfield 4 May 2015

66150 approaches Little Haresfield on 4 May 2015 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z46 05:25 Basingstoke to Dowlow (Briggs Sidings) 'Buxton & Cheshire Explorer' railtour. 66165 is out of sight on the rear of the train. The train is accelerating slowly away from Standish Junction, which is near the bridge in the background that 66150's heat haze exhaust is doing its best to obscure. The train has just traversed the 'Golden Valley' line from Swindon. As can be seen by the dark background, a large cloud was rapidly approaching, and I was lucky to get this one in the sun. A long lens was necessary to clear numerous shadows in the foreground.
