Class 25 Action

Shrewsbury Monday 3rd May 1982

1T10 07.15 Manchester Piccadilly - Aberystwyth ADEX

From the May/September 1982 - Aberystwyth trains pictures.

25048 (front) and 25044 head the Bank Holiday Manchester - Aberystwyth excursion train on the 3rd May.

The annual Manchester - Aberystwyth ADEX ran from at least 1980 through to the end of class 25 locos on the Cambrian services in 1984 and signalled the start of that year's Aber season.  To cover this train I did a West Coast overnight with a selection of dud 85's and 86's on the sleeper trains, made worse by high winds at Gretna delaying all southbound services.  The Rats were both low mileage for me so I declined to take them beyond Shrewsbury and headed off elsewhere (for what was to turn out to be a poor day's bashing!).
