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.
