431 Salwick 3 November 2001

You don't get many Class 50s here (at least not in recent times)! 431 (50031) passes Salwick in atrocious weather on 3 November 2001 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z27 06:51 Cardiff Central to Blackpool North 'Nor' By Nor' West' railtour. This surprisingly rural location is between Preston and Kirkham. In pre digital days and with only ISO 100 Fujichrome available, 1/250sec f2.8 was required, so it was a good job that the train wasn't going particularly fast!
