D7672 Mostyn 30 March 1991

Four years after the rest of the class was withdrawn by BR, D7672 Tamworth Castle finally retired from the national network on 30 March 1991. The Hertfordshire Railtours 1Z45 07:20 Kings Cross to Holyhead 'Rat Requiem' railtour is pictured passing Mostyn, with the unmistakable outline of the grounded 'Duke of Lancaster' ship in the background. The 'Rat' had taken over the train at Leeds. With only 1,250 hp available, ten coaches is a bit of a load!
