OVER AND DOWN THE TYNE
With my Nikon Coolpix 5000 - you pressed the shutter then three seonds later it clicked. Possibly in mid span when I fired! A Regional Railways-liveried Sprinter crosses the High Level Bridge while we wait for the Swing Bridge to open, and the shutter to fire, before proceeding down river.

PLANNING & LUCK!
The Sun was on the horizon for the 1450 Aberdeen-Kings Cross Inter City 125 HST at Plawsworth.
I had planned this shot for a few days with the Sun on the horizon to the West and the background in shadow of the train. I had given up as the Sun dropped into cloud just above the horizon. However, the Sun re-appeared as it rounded the bend running a few minutes late! 5th April 2012
