17068340028r.jpg 40028 powering towards Penmaenrhos Tunnel shortly after leaving Colwyn Bay on the 1123 Bangor to Scarborough.

17068340169r.jpg 40169 drags 86322 through Chester on the 1405 Euston to Carlisle on load 13. After turning on the triangle much to my surprise the train stopped in the opposite platform presumably for a crew change so i quickly got on!

Carnforth to replace 47243.
