101685 Dolwyddelan 27 August 1994

Longsight allocated 101685 was repainted into original green livery in the 1990s (albeit with a yellow warning panel) and thereafter was a frequent visitor to the picturesque Blaenau Ffestiniog line. It is seen here approaching Dolwyddelan on 27 August 1994 with the 12:05 Blaenau Ffestiniog to Llandudno Regional Railways service. Already 38 years old when this picture was taken, the unit would amazingly remain in traffic for almost another decade. Note that the driver has forgotten to alter the destination blind!
