First 67 on the coast

Saturday 23rd June 2001

This apparently peaceful scene is deceptive as we're on the Britannia Bridge with the traffic roaring behind us while 47 851 passes below with 1A46, the 09:19 Holyhead to Euston

We cycle on to Holyhead and sit on a station bench to eat our sandwiches. To our surprise, 47 789 Lindisfarne arrived a few minutes early at the head of 1D87 but I recovered quickly to grab a quick shot as it glided to a halt at the terminus.

The loco is on the headshunt ready to run round

The run round is completed but that's not the end of it...

The train headed off to set back onto platform 3, vacating platform 1 for the charter

The 67 arrives
