37038 & 37197 Pontrilas 2 March 2003

37038 & 37197 pass Pontrilas with the 1Z48 08:50 Manchester Piccadilly to Cardiff Central football special on 2 March 2003. This was for the Worthington Cup Final played between Liverpool and Manchester United at the Millennium Stadium, which incidentally, Liverpool won 2-0. Pontrilas station closed in 1964, but the signal box and loop remains, along with a fine collection of semaphore signals. Considering the amount of cloud all around, I was lucky to get this one in the sun!
