50042 Kingham 16 October 1983

The guard waves his green flag, giving the driver of 50042 Triumph the right of way at Kingham station on Sunday 16 October 1983. The train is the 1C48 16:10 Paddington to Hereford service. The reason for using this viewpoint of the static train, taken from the remains of the old cattle dock, is that at 17:45 on an autumn afternoon the light is fading fast. With Kodachrome 64 in the camera, this required an exposure of 1/60sec f2.8.
