Before The Infestation

66.558 powered 4M98, the 18:00 Southampton M.C.T. to Garston F.L.T. Freightliner, past Spring Farm, north of Goring, on the evening of 12 June 2014.

This shot could only be done on midsummer evenings, when the sun lit the front of northbound trains for a short period before the whole scene was engulfed in shadow. By the time the evenings were long enough in 2015, the electrification masts were up and it wasn't worth going back.
