12806 Steeple Aston 2 October 2018

Brand new CAF built driving trailer 12806 brings up the rear of the 5Q32 09:41 Portbury Automotive Terminal to Longsight ECS at Steeple Aston on 2 October 2018. This is destined for the Trans Pennine route, and is part of a contract that will see the Spanish manufacturer build 66 Mk 5 coaches for the new loco hauled services. 47812 was hauling the train at probably near the maximum permitted speed of 75mph, which explains the leaves being thrown into the air along the length of the train.
