I chose to shoot 35006 from a more head-on angle, as I felt that the sun was not in quite the correct position to shoot from the side, as per the photograph earlier in the collection.   I had initially considered composing the train slightly to one side as a potential magazine cover, but in the end I settled for a more central composition.
 
My concerns about the dynamic of the location becoming compromised due to trains stopping here have been alleviated by the GWSR choosing not to stop the main Toddington to Cheltenham workings at the halt.   Instead only the DMU shuttles call here, at least for the moment, anyway.
