A similar angle to the previous, but perhaps taken a bit too late in the day for the location.   I was on my way to Hayles Abbey to do some photography there, and decided to attempt photographing 7903 as it passed the location, as I initially felt that the angle of the sun would just about support the shot.
 
However, upon examining the original exposure, I felt that the train was underexposed in favour of the skyline.   In the end, I was able to adjust the exposure to come up with something that increased the train exposure level without losing too much exposure on the skyline.
