66596 6J45 MCV 14/08/08
One of my favourite photographs, taken from a block of flats in Salford that overlooked the River Irwell bridge and approach to Manchester Victoria. I really committed to taking this, sitting in a cramped position for over an hour and without knowing the train was even running - but the result was worth the effort. The sunny evening of 14th August 2008 sees 66596 leading the 6J45 1827 Dean Lane - Pendleton 'binliner'. The shot was published in 'Rail Express'.
