I was waiting for a steam special which was so late it would have crossed this bridge in the dark. As it was this Azuma was a bonus. Diverted from the main East Coast line this working was heading for Newcastle and a return to its original route. Seen crossing the South Tyne river in full spate due to the recent heavy rains just before the low sun was swallowed up by more clouds and rain.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
