50030 Moreton-in-Marsh 4 January 1986

It is just a few minutes after sunrise on 4 January 1986, and the sun is tingeing the clouds pink, but is still too weak to provide much illumination for 50030 Repulse, as it accelerates away from Moreton-in-Marsh with the 1A18 07:00 Hereford to Paddington 'Cathedrals Express'. There had been a sharp frost overnight, and it looked like there might be a chance of a sunny day, but unfortunately the cloud won, spreading to cover the whole sky just after the sun had risen. Therefore with only 35mm Fujichrome 100 available, f1.4 had to be used, hence the mediocre quality.
