D7659 Dixton 19 July 1997

D7659 spent several months at the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway during 1996 & 1997, and is seen here passing a large display of Rosebay Willowherb at Dixton, as it heads back to Toddington from Gotherington on 19 July 1997. Although I took this on both 35mm and 6x7, this is from the 35mm transparency, as the limited depth of field of the rollfilm version means that most of the flowers are out of focus. The loco and coaches may not be quite as sharp in this version, but at least the flowers are!
