This is an attempt to recreate something resembling a photograph from a "Past and Present" book, hence the fact that I've converted it to black & white .   The train is returning from Parkend (where I had walked from to get to the location) to Lydney Junction and is about to cross the Lydney-Parkend Road.   This was my first attempt at a "Train in the Landscape" shot on the Dean Forest Railway and is perhaps the most convenient location to attempt this sort of shot (although I think it would have worked better from the other side of the crossing).
