37608 Andromeda Nameplate 30 May 2020

Andromeda Rations! The placing of 37608's Andromeda nameplate above the Rail Operations Group wording on the loco's bodyside gives a slightly odd effect when a tightly cropped picture is taken. Note the Andromeda Constellation star map on the left of the nameplate. This is the first time that I have taken a nameplate picture whilst the train was moving. As the loco passed Broad Marston on 30 May 2020 with the 5Q91 13:40 Long Marston to Northampton EMD EMU move, I used a long lens to take this close up shot. A high shutter speed was obviously required, even though the train wasn't moving particularly fast, and some serious perspective correction in Photoshop was needed, but it worked surprisingly well.
