Interesting. I wonder, was that because there was no room on the other side of the tracks? I am scratching my head as to why any charter operator worth his/her salt would stage a run-by in a location where there was almost no part of the train with front-lighting. On charters, some people do ELECT to shoot from the dark side (typically with the loco nose lit), but the primary shot is virtually always the bright side, unless the operator is going for some sort of artistic effect.

Was this trip led by a photographer? Usually the goal of a photo charter is to have the participants take home the best possible least if they want repeat business.

My RP stuff is here.
