50023 Garsdale 15 April 1974

Pre health and safety days at Garsdale on 15 April 1974. Passengers from the Wirral Railway Circle 1L81 09:03 Crewe to Alston 'Alstonian' railtour wander alongside (and across) the tracks in order to secure their pictures of 50023 during the train's booked photo stop. 50023 worked the train between Crewe and Carlisle, from where an eight car DMU rake took over. This was the first occasion on which a Class 50 worked a railtour.
