L583 Little Bedwyn 16 April 1979

L583 (51069, 59428 & 51097) runs between the River Dun (on the left) and the Kennet & Avon Canal (on the right), as it passes Little Bedwyn on 16 April 1979 with the 2A08 16:07 Reading to Bedwyn service. Unfortunately this is one of the few pictures I took from this angle before a line of conifers completely blocked out the view. Its just a pity that I didn't use 1/1000sec f2.8 instead of 1/250sec f5.6 to expose the original Kodachrome 64 transparency!
