Could not decide between v1 and 2 in the end choose v1 as slight different composition and showed the timeless human side of railway operation as a member of the platform staff pass the time of day with the train crew while awaiting the signal to move off.

V2 shows arrival, v3 departure and the signal gantry v 4 and v5 are shunting scenes, as a timeless railway shot v4 appeals to me as it could have been taken anytime on a northern railway station in the 1950s or 60s and v5 has plenty of activity

I like V1, the steam/smoke takes away any distracting background. The light on the front of the engine in V2 is a little harsh for me, but I like the compostion of V4 and the classic shiny rails of V5.

You're right about V4 but for me V3 has it all. Human interest, strong sky and loco exhaust coupled with the infrastructure of the signal gantry which tells those in the know that the train is set to cross from one track to another. I love it.
