With the weather back to its normal dull and miserable, 50044 "Exeter" is heading north along the down slow at Old Linslade with 1Z50 (the displayed headcode denoting a light engine!), the 08:12 from Euston to Holyhead "The Snowdon Ranger". This was a two-day tour, working to Llanrwst the following day before returning to Euston. It was originally planned to be operated by two Class 50s but 50049 was not available, so the train has 57304 "Gordon Tracy" on the rear of the Virgin "Pretendalino" set of Mk.3 coaches. 09:13, Saturday 3rd September 2011.
