July 2003 saw the 150th Anniversary of Doncaster Locomotive Works and there were celebrations and dispays of locomotives built there. On the friday evening there was a Photographers Preview session, it rained, heavily. If you can imagine the scene, a couple of hundred photographers, wearing high visiblity vests, milling around carrying tripods and umbrellas, seeking to keep their gear dry, and then the rain stopped and the late sun shone on the site, everybody rushed to take photographs without any other high vis photograhers in the frame.
LNER B1 class 1306, Mayflower, was resplendent in Apple Green livery with the last rays of the sun catching it. and there is a photographer in matching green high vis vest at the side.
