When I first used this location in June 2010, I felt that it might work as a lineside location for the Dean Forest Railway, and was close enough to Norchard to make transporting a tripod a viable option (which I did on this occasion).   However, I've concluded that it doesn't work as well in October as the vegetation is more overgrown and the sun is lower (ironically if it hadn't been for the trees behind me, I might well have perfect lighting).   In the end, I've decided I prefer this one in Black and White rather than colour so this is the version I'm putting into this collection.  

This wasn't my best session on the railway.   I had planned three shots; this is only one of those three I was able to execute in any form, as the other two were rendered impossible by the operating conditions on the railway that day.
