Foggy Spaniards

Night shifts at work sometimes throw up some gems for me to photograph, though last night was a bit of a quandary.  Do I go for the wagons or the locomotives, by all accounts neither will be around for much longer.  Normally it would have been a case of fire off a couple of shots of the locomotives then move to the wagons.  The only issue with this last night was the train was only expected to sit in the platform for a minute or two, it was stupidly dark as the lights turn off at 02:00 on platform 4, and I didn’t have the tripod with me so I was going to have to handhold the shots.  In the end I went for the locomotives and prayed I could find the time for the wagons.  Alas, thick fog and a flash firing at a moving train really don’t produce usable photographs so the result was locomotives only, damn.

As for what else was in the consist? ZCA Sea Urchins being used as brake force. they had passed through the station earlier in their southbound journey but due to late running they clashed with a time I had to some work. Shocker I know but I am paid to once in a while work instead of take pictures.
