The End Of An Era

60.032 passed Manor Farm, north of Cholsey, with 6B33, the 13:42 Theale - Robeston empty oil tanks, on 7 November 2003.

After more than 20 years photographing Britain's railways, I was getting bored with the endless DMUs and Sheds. Loco hauled passengers had become a real rarity, mail trains had finished and most of the locos I'd grown up with had been sent to the scrapper. There were much richer pickings in Europe and in the next ten years I only went out to photograph trains in Britain on a handful of occasions.
