175116 Dinmore Tunnel 2 June 2009

The final production Class 175 and one of the few still in the original livery (albeit now branded Arriva), 175116 emerges from Dinmore Tunnel with the 10:33 Holyhead to Cardiff Central Arriva Trains Wales service on 2 June 2009. I had not visited this location for two decades, and although I shouldn't really have been surprised, the growth of the surrounding vegetation has virtually obscured the view. The general view of both single line bores (the other tunnel is just to the left of the PW hut) is impossible and a long lens is needed to squeeze through a gap in the trees.
