66706 Goole (Potters Grange Junction) 11 March 2010

With Goole's landmark 'Salt and Pepper Pot' water towers and the spire of St John the Evangelist church dominating the scene, 66706 Nene Valley slowly weaves across onto the Knottingley line at Potters Grange Junction on 11 March 2010 with the 6H29 09:43 Hull Docks to Drax Power Station coal train. A sunny day had been forecast, and although bright early on, the largest black cloud in the sky was in front of the sun when the train appeared in the distance. I turned this bad luck to my advantage by moving to what would normally be the shady side, for this view which includes the Goole water towers - an angle that would not be possible if the sun was out.
