47812 Steeple Aston 2 October 2018

Another set of Spanish built Mk 5 coaches for the Trans Pennine loco hauled services was moved from Portbury to Manchester on 2 October 2018, the second occasion on which barrier vehicles have not been used. Rail Operations Group 47812 passes Steeple Aston at speed on 2 October 2018 with the 5Q32 09:41 Portbury Automotive Terminal to Longsight ECS. I had chosen this remote location, as the traffic free farm occupation bridge would easily allow a quick change of position to get a photograph of the brand new driving trailer vehicle at the rear of the train.
