Loco hauled excitement on Thursday
Author: 86235

Thursday saw the Northern Belle cruise train on one of its periodic visits to South wales, this time a Liverpool to Cardiff Poshex. It was topped and tailed by West Coast power, 47813 was leading southbound and 57316 on the return.

1 & 2: Southbound morning run passing Llanvihangel (and the 09:00 Carmarthen to Manchester Piccadilly).

For the evening return the Northern Belle was slotted in between the evening loco hauled 1W96 Cardiff to Holyhead and the 6Z51 timber train, which preceeded an empty stone train bound for Moreton on Lugg

3: 1W96 Cardiff to Holyhead

4: 57316 with two of the 1960 built Metropolitan Cammell Pullman cars based on the BR Mk 1 frame and body style. These Pullmans (44 were built) were the first passenger cars in the UK to use the English Steel Castings design Commonwealth bogie (truck). ESC was a subsidiary of General Steel Castings.
5: 56096 on the timber approaching Pontrilas on the England / Wales border
6: Running a few minutes late 66416 on the East Usk to Moreton on Lugg empty stone hoppers. It was just after 7:30 p.m. and the sun was just dipping below the horizon
