68004 Tredington 22 July 2017

68004 Rapid passes Tredington on 22 July 2017 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z07 05:43 Bristol Temple Meads to Carlisle 'Lakeland Explorer' railtour. A superb sight, despite the inclusion of the two faded Anglia livered coaches amid the immaculate blue and grey set. I was extremely lucky with the lighting here, as although the morning had started sunny, it had been cloudy for quite some time before the train was due. As the train approached, the sun gradually got brighter, contrasting nicely with the dark clouds in the background. Then, just after the train had passed, the sun gradually faded out again. If only it always happened like that!
