D1015 Shorthampton 7 September 2013

As the sun sets on 7 September 2013, D1015 Western Champion passes Shorthampton with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z53 15:36 Weymouth to Leicester 'Western Wessexman' railtour  Despite the fact that once past Wolvercote Junction there would be virtually no locations that would be clear of shadows in the last of evening light, I wanted a record of this train on the Cotswold Line, rather than further south, in what may have been better light. At least the sun would have been on the front there, but as I suspected, it had already disappeared.
