Just in time!

During a day of cloud and squalls it had been difficult trying to get shots of the shareholder's special service on the Churnet Valley line. The sun finally made a fleeting appearance late in the afternoon as I waited at the traditional position where the railway crosses the Caldon Canal at Consal Forge. I could hear the train in the station and could see the clouds scudding towards the sun. Would the train come in time? As it was, 80072 accelerated across the bridge, I got my shot, and a few seconds later the sun disappeared for good.


Result! :-))
