What happens when you go to photograph a train at one of the few locations where the sun will be on the front? The answer of course is that the sun goes behind a cloud at the crucial moment! 47813 & 47812 pass Badgeworth on 15 June 2018 with the 5Q32 09:00 Portbury Automotive Terminal to Manchester International Depot (Longsight) ECS. The first five vehicles are newly imported Mk5 coaches for the forthcoming Trans Pennine loco hauled services, the last vehicle of the five being a driving trailer. Behind the new coaches are a raft of six barrier vehicles.
