This was taken on two separate weekends back in mid to late April, both trying to capture the trains on their first run of the morning. The low sun in the spring sky helped catch the shadows of the steam coming from the engines as they made their way up to Four Marks.
The Watercress line is a 19th-century heritage line with steam trains traveling through vintage stations & themed events in north east Hampshire
We’ve been on the railway several times over the years, there’s something about the way the whole package fits together that just works, it’s not just the trains and their coaches, but the stations and the attention to detail by the clever people who make this happen that helps transport you back in time.
Thanks, there were two places, the first two segments were from here 51.089376342810915, -1.0990147627594196 and the last one was by the bridge here 51.09877156891514, -1.0823820398596173, it’s a common spot for photographers wanting to capture the trains, you’ll often see cars parked at the bottom of the track leading up to the bridge.
