66188 Tackley 18 June 2015

High summer at Tackley. 66188 catches the very last weak rays of the setting sun, as it passes a hedgerow full of Dog Roses on 18 June 2015, with the 6X65 20:28 Didcot to Mossend freight. Only around the Summer Solstice is it possible to photograph this train at this location, and even then, with it being just after 9pm, a setting of ISO 3200 was required in order to allow for a reasonable aperture. This train is one of the longest in the country, conveying assorted general wagons, as well as the main traffic of new cars and vans.
