Cambrian Trains 1985-88

 

The December issue of RI features an article on the Cambrian line Class 37s from 1985, and due to space constraints, the tables of locos used could not be reproduced, so we have listed them here

Notes

1: 37426/428 worked 1J20 from Shrewsbury but returned on 1L01, the Pwllheli-Stalybridge, Traintours ‘Welsh Thunderer’ charter. This had been worked on the outward leg by 25288 and 40122 which returned on 2J26 and 1A85.

2: 37509 worked 1J18 from Shrewsbury as far as Caersws where it failed and was eventually rescued by 25211 which took the train to Machynlleth where it, and 1A50, were cancelled.

3: 37205/430 worked 1J20, the 0730 from Shrewsbury but the train was cancelled at Machynlleth due to a Sprinter derailment. The locos then worked the 1402 Machynlleth-Shrewsbury in place of a DMU.

4: 25323 piloted 37426 on 1J18, the 0725 from Shrewsbury to Machynlleth as the Class 25 was needed for a ballast train.
