In 2004, I paid a visit to the Severn Valley Railway while photographing for a calendar on British Steam Railways.
Of the preserved railways in the UK, the Severn Valley is among my favorites and one of the most photogenic.
Finding this slide in my collection reminded me that I’m long overdue for another visit.
I made this photo of Erlestoke Manor leading a southward train toward Kidderminster using a Nikon loaded with Fujichrome Sensia II (100 ISO) slide film.
To make the most of this vintage slide, I made a multiple-pass scan with a Nikon Super Cooolscan500 slide scanner powered by VueScan software then imported the hi-res scan into Lightroom where I adjusted contrast, color balance, color temperature, saturation and the exposure of the sky.
