D172 Rhyl 26 August 1996

D172 Ixion pulls out of Rhyl station on 26 August 1996 with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z46 07:10 Swindon to Holyhead 'North Wales Coast Explorer' railtour. If you think the clouds in the background herald a change in the weather, you are dead right! Within ten minutes the sun had gone and the rain had arrived. Despite this, I stayed on to see 37417 pass in a monsoon!
