47151 Llandevenny 21 October 1985

It's hard to believe now that lengthy van trains such as this were a daily occurrence on the old British Rail. With seventeen vehicles in tow (including a GW150 chocolate and cream Mk1 coach), 47151 passes Llandevenny on 21 October 1985 with the 3A12 06:45 Swansea to Old Oak Common newspaper empties. The Bishton flyover in the background enables the up relief line to cross over the main running lines.
