86213 Penkridge 4 July 1987

Looking smart in freshly applied InterCity livery with a painted black headcode panel, 86213 Lancashire Witch speeds past Penkridge with the 16:10 Liverpool to Euston service on 4 July 1987. Unfortunately this was one of the few occasions that I was experimenting with Agfa transparency film, as they did a ISO200 emulsion which was ideal for a Pentax 6x7. Even then the results proved to be poor and the slide has since aged very badly, turning a nasty purple colour. However, rather than scan the 35mm Kodachrome slide that I also took at the time, I have magically transformed Agfa's dodgy slide by clicking the 'restore colour' button on the scanner software, thereby saving me much tweaking in Photoshop!
