The weather was fine for the major part of the journey, with the exception of a little rain on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.
However, immediately after Shrewsbury the heavens opened, so this programme has been restricted to that part of the route from Chester to Shrewsbury only.
At the time the line had only been partially rationalised and signals and sidings remained at Weston Rhyn, Baschurch and Haughton.
We pass a plain blue painted DMU as well as the Chirk Speedlink with timber Ã?¢?' quite nostalgic!
Please note there is no formal commentary other than cab conversations which are not always audible above locomotive sounds.
