26-01-2017: Bitterly Cold on the Fife Circle

I went out to Inverkeithing this evening in the never ending quest of trying to get a decent Fife Circle

DRS class 68, 68022 ‘Resolution’ stands at Inverkeithing on 26th January 2017 with the 2G13 Edinburgh-Glenrothes with Thornton Scotrail service

loco hauled night shot. Sorry to say I failed miserably (see photo below). It look ok, but it’s heavily edited and I think I know now what I’m doing wrong.

Photographic ability (or lack of it) aside, it was a clear but bitterly cold night. Perfect for night photography as there was no cloud and no orange sky.

DRS class 68, 68022 ‘Resolution’ headed the 2G13 Edinburgh- Glenrothes with Thornton service and it’s 2K14 return, while 68007 ‘Valiant’ was the 2L69 Edinburgh-Cardenden, which returned as the 5L70 Cardenden-Mossend Yard ECS.

Virgin Trains East Coast class 43’s 43208 & 43308 ‘Highland Chieftain’ were on the 1S20 London Kings Cross-Aberdeen service.

Here is a list of all locomotives and multiple units seen:
