2 x 47s head a Felixtowe to Leeds Freightliner

info: Used an unusual medium format TLR camera. Was purchased brand new for £22! It was called a Lubitel and was 6 x 6 or 6 x 4.5 format. It's film pressure plate was not good at keeping film flat hence poor shapness was often seen. Also it leaked light so many of the 24 exposures I ever made are useless. Film was Fujichrome 200.

 

this image was taken in the summer of 1994 nr Little Downham at Main Drove. This freightliner was always double headed prior to the 66s arriving, and when it was 2 x 37s the sound was fantastic.

 

This train has always been timley and arrived at this point around 20.15 every evening and still does today, just now with a mundane 66!
