Departing up train
Another nice low level image as a train departs. Note the tail lamp. The trees are Potentilla bush branches and the hedge is rubberized horse hair furnace air filter. The signals did not operate but added to the air of authenticity. In my study of photgraphs of GWR trains I noticed that in the '30s a lot of trains were made up of an incredible assortment of coaches. This train has some ancient clerestory stock on it. The Triang compartment coaches of the time were a great base for parts and some books on GWR coaches provided the inspiration.
