Remarks & Notes 
It was foggy as I arrived in Leicester and I could only hope that getting 'up close' might be worthwhile. As the early sun filtered through the mist, 'Taw Valley' hurtled by heading for Rothley and thence on to Loughborough. I hadn't bargained on being quite so 'up close' as this and I fell backward into the frosted teasels. Shaken but stirred!

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.
