Winter Westbound

Winter was usually a difficult time for photography around Twyford as most of the accessible positions were in wooded cuttings and deep in shadow. Vegetation clearance in late 2015 improved matters considerably, opening up the shot of a westbound train from Milley Bridge at Waltham St. Lawrence, east of Twyford, for a few months before the electrification masts went up.
