RAW rework
Recomposed, lighting adjustments and object removal in PSP.

I got another chance with "Tangmere" two months later, and in much more favourable lighting conditions; as a result I've ended up with a better quality image.  It was a somewhat touch-and-go with the weather as it had been somewhat overcast when I arrived at the location, but the sun came through at the same time the tour did.
 
However, the human element conspired against me again; two motor cyclists decided to race the train along the track in the foreground and I ended up with both of them in the shot.  Fortunately, the recomposure took care of one, and removing the other was not too much of a problem.
