Great shot. Wasn't sure initially whether I liked the large tree in the foreground 'overshadowing' the train...but I think it does work. The colours are spot on as well.

It's a problem trying to find a different angle on what is (at the moment) a very short railway.
Best wishes,

I like it. Not a railway I'd heard of before.

This is great Andrew... Really like the composition... Making the tree the hero puts the train into the context of the landscape through which it passes... Lovely retro colours too...

Best
Bill
