66525 at Bloxwich
This shot took about three attempts to get in the sun. It was finally nailed, with some luck in the end, on Friday 21st June 2013. 66525 winds through Bloxwich at 17:32 with the 6M04 Portbury - Rugeley coal train. The longest day was the best day for this shot, as the sun doesn't get onto the front of northbound trains until around 17:00, but still needs to be as high as possible to clear the trees on the west side of the line. 6M04 was the sixth of seven loaded trains into Rugeley Power Station on this day.
