47482 Conwy 30 August 1983

Perfect timing! 47482 leaves Robert Stephenson's Conwy tubular bridge on 30 August 1983 with the 1D48 13:20 Crewe to Holyhead service, while a Class 108/101 DMU combination heads in the opposite direction with the 13:35 Holyhead to Llandudno. Tom was extremely lucky, both to place the 47 centrally in the very tight gap between the bridge and castellated turret, and to have the DMU in the optimum position.
