I do agree with the comment about lack of tones/shades in the B16 shot. Better than b/w but still not the ideal. I hope the members of the forum will not mind seeing this LMS view. It is a very recent effort. The Jubilee 'Zanzibar' was seen near Rugby in May 1939 and for me, this one ticks all the boxes. Few do and they are all recent ones so the 2 years+ seems to be working.

Brilliant. I would have to agree, the best so far.

It is very good, but at the risk of sounding like a broken record - the sky does not fit with the sunshine levels. Just a thin spread of blue would improve it much more.

Go on, be brave.

Judging by the shadows, the sun is to the right out of shot? It could conceivably be overcast to the rear and LHS.

I'm afraid not. If it was overcast in the distance the sky would appear much darker, because it would not be emitting a great deal of light.

It just seems a shame to me that all that effort has gone into colouring the track and ballast in the foreground to a very high standard, but nothing has been done to the sky.

I realise that I am a lone voice in the meteorological nerd department, but to me it is as incorrect as coloring the loco in yellow. However, I will go away and give you all a rest from my moaning.

The Jubilee colour photograph looks great, although the running lines look a bit odd to me for an L.M.S. line although i don't know the area or railway that the photograph was taken in?. On a L.M.S. route it is usually Up slow/Down slow/Up fast/Down fast lines or Down fast/Up fast/Down slow/Up slow lines if thats the case in the picture the train is either running in the Down direction over the Up line fast line in the wrong direction or is running in the Up direction over Down slow line in the wrong direction?. i presume the train is running over a parallel running line section i.e.- Up slow/Up fast/Down fast/Down slow like mainly on L.N.E.R routes.

Two possible stretches of lines 'Paired by direction' (i.e. Up/Up/Down/Down) would, I think, be Attleborough-Tamworth, and Armitage-Colwich.

...Yes, I thought so.
Another possibility would, I think, be somewhere Crewe North Junction-Winsford.

The photo was described as being taken 'near Rugby'. The sun was obviously shining brightly from the right and low in the sky. If the train is heading north it will have been early evening and south, early morning, but the direction I do not know.
