It's clearly a cloak-and-dagger movie in the making, Les. I love it...especially his reflection and the star-light shining in the background.
Les Auld: Surreptitiously caught on camera perhaps Ginnie, thanks for the comment.

Nicely posed Les. He looks a bit dodgy though: maybe a black marketeer
Les Auld: Perhaps a bit of a spiv Chris, thanks for the comment.

Nah, late night and all? The story is that the two of them have been taking the last train for so many years now. He bids her a fond adieu - until tomorrow evening. She is still glowing from the attention he paid to her, thinking of a suitable remark when her husband comes to pick her up at the next town down the line.

Excerpt from: "Forbidden love on the last train to Parcels Charter", by Louis.
Les Auld: Would make a great story Louis, thanks for the comment.

A timeless image, Les.. "Night Mail" comes to mind (or should that be "night male"?)
Les Auld: I do enjoy the Night Mail, watch it often, thanks for the comment Alan.
This is a delight Les. Like stepping onto the set of brief encounter!
Les Auld: The event was sub-titled Brief Encounter of the ELR Kind Bill, thanks for the comment.
