66014 Bunbury 2 April 1999

This is definitely something out of the ordinary! 66014 passes Bunbury on 2 April 1999 with the 1K67 12:51 Holyhead to Crewe, substituting for an unavailable Class 37/4. The earlier outward working was the first use of a Class 66 on a passenger train (railtours excepted). Despite the novelty of the traction, the fact that it replaced a Class 37 did not go down well at the time. Even though the weather was awful, I'm glad I took this historic picture, as it seems from perusal of the web that virtually nobody else did!
