Class 25 Action

Aberystwyth Saturday 18th September 1982

25323 and 25310 (rear) prepare to run round the stock of the 0738 Shrewsbury - Aberystwyth

The locos then back on to the stock to form the last 1007 Aberystwyth - Euston train of the year 

Just a few minutes to go now and crew prepare to board 25323.  Unfortunately this loco didn't want to work in multiple with its partner and at Machynlleth it was replaced with the standby engine

By the time the train departed Machynlleth 25311 was the lead loco.  The token change was carried out near to 30 mph as the train hurried to make up time.

The last down 1982 Summer Saturday service sees 25182 and 25235 (rear) waiting at Welshpool with the 1010 Euston - Aberystwyth train

25304 (and 25194) heads the 1400 Aberystwyth - Shrewsbury into Caersws, passing a waiting DMU
