Hi Maggs & David,

Thank you for your visit and keen observation.

Maggs, your thoughts are correct. Helga is from Sweden, and is built slightly wider than English coaches, hence very limited clearance past the bridge girders and platform edges. I have some pictures from May 2018 (not posted here) which show Helga and then a UK train entering the same platform. Also Helga is not quite as high as UK coaches, so the combined effect is what you can see in the picture here

Best wishes, HFF, and a good weekend!

My dear Peter,

An unusual train from Nene valley railway!!! Great capture and perspective!
But of course you have done a great composition, including the four people in this frame !!! And a very good balance there! So it is a very attractive picture!
I really like this picture very much!!

HFF and have a great weekend! Stay safe.
