50026 Hungerford Common 30 September 1989

50026 Indomitable speeds past Hungerford Common on a very dull 30 September 1989 with the 1C41 13:02 Paddington to Paignton 'InterCity Holidaymaker'. The very poor technical quality of this picture is explained not only by the atrocious weather, but also by the fact that it was taken on colour negative film. During the 1980s I tried a few rolls of professional neg film in my Pentax 6x7. Although obviously a great deal better than 35mm, it is still incredibly difficult to get a good scan, and not a patch on transparency film. Thank goodness I didn't persist with that experiment!
