Holidays over

Quality not as good as I’d like because I’ve had to go back to scanning from the print. This and several other photographs taken on the same occasion are missing from the Bentosfoto negative archive, so it appears that a strip or two must have been lost. The occasion was Saturday 21st September 1974. I’d had an early turn, and probably a pretty cushy one too, since I’d been home, changed out of uniform, had a snack and returned to Lawrence Hill Station by early afternoon.
The summer timetable was still in operation …this was probably its final weekend… and there was a ceaseless flow of extra trains, laid on for the holiday traffic to and from the the West Country. All, I noted with displeasure, were hauled by Brush Type 4s, or the slightly less uninteresting "Peak class". This was a northbound working, the 1025 Penzance-Bradford ("The Cornishman"), crammed with peeling, sun-encrimsoned, ice cream, rock and full English breakfast-sated holidaymakers returning to the prospect of work on Monday morning. The Peak is accelerating hard for a run at Ashley Hill bank.
Taking the photo, as will be seen, involved hanging over the top of a wall, and it is scarcely surprising that it is a little out of horizontal. I thought of correcting this flaw, but desisted because the inclination makes the picture a little more edgy and dramatic, I think.
