Class 25 Action

Central Wales Monday 23rd April 1984

1Z38 07:15 Derby - Tenby ADEX

25083 (front) and 25245 stand at Llanwrtyd Wells station whilst passengers set off for an impromptu photo stop.  The locos joined the train at Shrewsbury, replacing 45141 which had worked through from Derby.  They came off the train at Llanelli, being replaced by 47140 for the rest of the journey.

On the return leg the locos replaced 47140 at Llanelli.  Here 25245 leads 25083 as they drop onto the train.

25245 and 25083 are coupled up to the excursion train at Llanelli and await the level crossing gates to close before setting off to the Midlands via Lickey Incline (where 37297 assisted the train up the bank).
