Hatfield Peverel 1985

It's Flaming June in 1985 and I've found myself at Hatfield Peverel station somewhere in the east of England.

Whilst it wasn't pleasant taking photos in these conditions as usual the rain brings out a very different feel to a place, giving the shots a bleakness that sunny shots would miss.

It was a busy station with quite a variety of stock coming through. This was the tail end of the BR blue era but a few carriages with Inter-City livery are starting to appear in the loco hauled rakes.

I also tried to capture a few atmosphere/existentialist shots, which I think managed to catch the everyday feel of the place. All in all a good hour or so well spent!
