45001 Llandevenny 21 October 1985

45001 comes off the Bishton Flyover at Llandevenny on 21 October 1985 with the 6A44 09:05 Margam to Swindon Cocklebury Yard vacuum braked steel train. This service was one of the last revenue earning vacuum braked services operating in South Wales. 45001 was withdrawn almost exactly three months after this picture was taken, and after storage at various locations, was cut up at M.C. Metals at Glasgow in November 1988.
