That's a nice angle, but can you get a bit lower so that the power lines aren't in the way?

Several times I've noticed shots of the loco's in England, only pulling one or two cars. Is this a common thing, or just because of being near a destination? And what kind if car or load is this. The car is quite interesting looking!

It’s a nuclear waste train, pulling a single nuclear flask. Two locos used in case of failure. Don’t normally see more than two/three flasks being pulled. They used to use barrier wagons as well but not seen any used recently.

Golden Arrow passing through my local station earlier this year.
Meopham, Kent. UK. It was raining hard. Wife was holding the umbrella over the camera just in case it wasn't as water resistant as claimed by Canon.
