Nunney Castle

28th October 2000



The weather was foul but that wasn't going to stop our outing to Llandudno Junction to see GWR Collett Castle 5029 Nunney Castle arrive on a Birmingham to Holyhead excursion.


The figures on the road bridge must have been very wet. We were among a line of photographers standing at the end of the platform canopy. On a day when the rail network suffered serious delays due to emergency engineering work and bad weather, 5029 was just a few minutes late, hard on the heels of a delayed unit.



5029 waits to be watered.


The heavy rain pushed us back under cover, from where I grabbed this long range shot before our visitor continued down the coast.

 We return to Bangor
