Scarborough Spa Express

By TonyFrith
This was taken as the Scarborough Spa Express pulled out from Kirk Hammerton station after slowing down to collect the token it is a single line to Poppleton just outside York. I like the expressions on the people looking I think they were locals & not used to seeing a big train pulling 12 coaches

Techs taken in poor light hence ISO 1000 1/250 sec f8 @130mm

All comments welcome thanks for all the comments & clicks on previous photos

The expressions in context of the train make this shot. Have tried to further empahsie that by a couple of mods. There is signifcant "white space" in the top third of the shot, that I have also tried to reduce.

The expressions are what make this picture all part of the railway scene, only comment is lamp in front of signal clashes a bit and ideally bit more of last coach or crop sliver is again slightly distracting Robin
