Thanks for the comments, yes the crew were very good and patient for the photographers, in return when the photoshoot finshed we all put some money in the hat so they could buy some beers for themselves. Yep the exp time was 4.2 secs and when I did the Raw conversion on PS Elements 7 I did darken the lighting of the image as it looked far too bright and garish. I have another angle of the loco and crew posed so I'll upload that.
