Powering Up

The Rylstone Branch, just outside Skipton, has become a personal project of mine to explore just how many different photographic opportunities there are along it's short but very scenic distance. Trains leaving Swinden Quarry frequently run earlier than the advertised time, and this occasion was no exception. I arrived at this spot in what I thought was plenty of time, only to find that, as I pulled up in my car, the train was coming around the curve, having departed some 42 minutes early! It was a scramble to get my camera gear out, but thankfully, I just made it. GBRf 66777 'Annette' starts to power up as she leads the 18:20 Rylstone - Hull Dairycoates off the curve and begins the climb towards Scale House crossing, 7th April 2022.
