57305 Challow 15 November 2018

Still wearing Pullman livery, but with the former 'Northern Belle' wording painted out, 57305 Northern Princess passes Challow on 15 November 2018 with the 5Q32 09:41 Portbury Automotive Terminal to Manchester International Depot (Longsight) ECS, conveying another set of Spanish built Mk 5 coaches for the forthcoming Trans Pennine loco hauled services. Presumably after reports of previous convoys being damaged by vegetation on the Portbury branch, this set has been shrink wrapped in plastic!
