War Department 2-8-0 storms out of Oakworth Station on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. I’d spotted this location when I was on the train earlier and drove down for a closer look. When I got there, I had a walk round to see if I could include the mill and the railway in the shot, but I struggled to find a composition that I liked. As I was mooching around, I heard the train leave Oakworth Station just a few hundred metres away, so I stayed put and just took it from where I was.
I’m still in two minds about it. The bit of the mill I’ve included does add some context, but there’s something missing and I don’t know what. Maybe it’s the field of view – this was at the 28mm end of the zoom range, so perhaps there isn’t enough of the mill in? I don’t know. A re-visit is in order!
