East Midlands Trains, Class 222 002, DEMU, seen here at Wellingborough railway station, with Class 66005 in the background, placed me in a bit of a quandry when it came to taking its photo.
At that particular time I was intent on photographing the Class 66 when a Class 222 DEMU, - one of a fleet of 27 train sets - pulled into the station.
Glad that the Class 66 was safely stored on my camera memory card, I quickly re-positioned the tripod, reset the camera and prayed that the demu would not move before the required amount of seconds had passed to produce an exposure.
Seconds passed by at the rate of one an hour as I nervously waited, holding my breath, and crossing for luck everything I had.
Luckily, photographing the Class 222 turned out ok with only a few seconds to spare before it began to move away. A close look at its lights will show that it slipped back slightly before gaining grip.
