An unidentified Clas 40 speeds along the coast west of Abergele with the 09.27 Manchester Victoria-Llandudno on 13th June 1981. The train is passing the exact spot where the Irish Mail came ot grief in 1868. 32 victims of the accident are buried in a churchyard in Abergele. The road was the Abergele by-pass, which became part of the A55 Expressway two years later. I drove for McAlpines during construction of this road in 1966-68... I eat my noon sandwiches trackside whenever the weather was fine and took this photo on the truncated Beach House Road. Class 47's No.47444 University of Nottingham and 47590 were working the 11.30 Euston-Holyhead near Llandulas on 13th May 1988. The trusty Mamiya 645 is seen on the parcels shelf while i am visible in the rear view mirror. (Contax 139 Quartz/50mm Planar T).... Making something of a Sprinter! Eating my sandwiches as usual, I must have seen this view a thousand times. The Class 150/1 was working the 11.52 Chester-Bangor on 21st February 1989... (Olympus OM1/35mm Zuiko on XP1 film)... Class 31 No. 31408 crosses the River Dulas with the 17.23 Llandudno-Derby in 1989.
