303048 Coppenhall Moss 12 October 1991

303048 passes Coppenhall Moss on 12 October 1991 with a Crewe to Liverpool Lime Street shuttle service, in connection with the Crewe Open Day. This particular unit had been repainted into the original 'Glasgow Blue Train' livery, and it certainly shows up well, even in these awful weather conditions. I will have to make do with this technically poor picture, as I never did see another Class 303 in operation on the mainline. 303048 was scrapped in 1996 due to asbestos contamination, but the class lingered on in their homeland of Scotland until 2002.
