156467 Marshfield 5 June 1989

For the first couple of years of Class 156 operations, the units often worked quite lengthy journeys, most of which were then taken over by Class 158s, as they became available. 156467 passes Marshfield on 5 June 1989 with the 1M70 08:03 Cardiff Central to Manchester Piccadilly Regional Railways service. This used to be my default location for photography when visiting South Wales. No point in going now of course, because this view has been lost under a mass of 25kV wiring.
