EWS Class 66005 Locomotive at Wellingborough

 EWS Class 66005 Strikes A Colourful Pose

While carrying out some night photography at Wellingborough railway station - trying to record some of its interesting architecture, I happened to be at one point in the evening's activities at the northern end of the station taking the opportunity to photograph East Midlands Trains DMU Class 222002.

As I did so I noticed out of the corner of my eye diesel locomotive an EWS Class 66 locomotive slowly coming into the station heading north on the freight-only line.  

Knowing I had no chance of taking a night photo of a moving Class 66 locomotive using a long exposure, I was satisfied to simply jot down the number, pick up my tripod/camera and go back to taking night photos of the station when, lo and behold, DMU Class 222002 pulled out and there stood diesel locomotive Class 66005 - one of 455 in operation - in a perfect pose.

I hoped and prayed that it would not move before I had a chance to set up the camera again and hit the shutter button.

As well as the above I also captured one more train that night during my night photography session - East Midlands Trains Class 43066 paused before continuing on to London St. Pancras.
