Cool Worth A Second Visit?

It's a two hour trip to Didcot from where I live (by train) so it's not really a problem to get there.The trouble is finding a sunny day - and being lucky enough to get a second train in the background.So,what do you think - is it worth the effort to try and get this in full sun,or is it just not interesting enough ?

I wouldn't be too concerned about getting a second train in the background. This scene is strong enough to stand on its own with one train in it. And, I believe it will look MUCH more appealing with some sunshine. Definitely make the trip back if you can.

Dave,

I like it and I don't think having a second train in the background is necessary for it to work. Your shot shows the train doing what it is meant to do, get passengers to/from work and home. If you can get there on a sunny day, I think trying it again would definitely be worth it.
