The 7:30am to Melbourne
 

Friends are there to meet passengers returning from Melbourne, 3 hours and 300kms south of Wang'.
I took up station at the extreme northern end of the platform waiting for this moment when the train arrived.
I had pre-set the lens to 150mm its maximum reach at 100 metres from the focus point which as the moment shows was
somewhat marred by the huggers. Well you can't choreograph street photography, sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't. *shrug

1/80 @ f/5.6 @ iso12800, handheld against post. - The train leaves Melbourne at 6:02pm on the dot, arriving on time at nine-o-nine!
All Aboard ! ! !

EDIT: IMAGE UPDATE 9:00PM "RETURNING HOME TONIGHT"
To test the camera's ability in this lighting situation I decided to brave the chill to capture passengers returning home from Melbourne.

The EXIF header reports the final image at 36 mm, 1/40 sec @ f/5.2 @ ISO 12800. I have never tried pushing the ISO on my camera (Canon EOS M3) that high. I guess I'll have to try it some time soon.

I Googled the EOS M3, I see it's mirrorless, as is the OMD M5 Mkii. The OMD is a micro 4/3rds camera and functions on different parameters to non MFT cameras.
