86426 Berkswell 21 March 1998

86426 Pride of the Nation passes Berkswell on 21 March 1998 with the Past Time Rail Euston to Chester 'Chester Chuffer' railtour. As the name suggests, the railtour was steam hauled later in the day, when GWR 43xx 2-6-0 7325 worked the train between Wolverhampton and Chester, and back to Bescot. Note the similarity between 86426's EWS livery, and the carmine and cream coaches.
