Hastings Diesels Limited Railtours - The Christmas Scholar
Hastings to Cambridge 5th December 2009

Hastings Diesels Limited, in associaton with First GB Railfreight, ran their "Christmas Scholar" railtour from Hastings to Cambridge, out via the GE line, return via the GN line, on Saturday 5th December.

There follows a small selection of my photographs.

The "out of the window" pictures were taken using a special camera mount that keeps the photographer inside the train and the camera with the "C1" profile. Neither the photographer nor Hastings Diesels Limited condones leaning out of train windows.
