Taken on Evesham Station.   At the time this is an angle that I hadn't used  in some years mainly because it works against the prevailing lighting conditions.   However, it was a very overcast day, and I decided to give it a try; the downside being that I had to use a fairly high ISO setting in order to get anything close to a fast  shutter speed.   However, in a spot of good fortune, the train ran early, and was held at Evesham in order for a preceding  train to clear the section ahead.   As a result, it was not travelling all that fast at this point.
  
On the whole, I think this is a fairly reasonable shot, given the somewhat adverse conditions it was taken under.
