Description

Filmed in the cab of Virgin Trains’ HST No. 43160 in 2000, we head for Chester and continue through Shotton, Flint and Prestatyn before arriving at Rhyl. Our next stops are at Colwyn Bay and Llandudno Junction with fine views of Conwy Castle as the train progresses to Bangor. Britannia Bridge is a truly remarkable spectacle as we move on to Anglesey!

Full description from the producer:

Filmed in the cab of Virgin Trains’ HST No. 43160 in 2000
we depart from Crewe station and pass the famous Works
buildings. Chester is the first stop and we continue through
Shotton, Flint and Prestatyn before arriving at Rhyl. Our next
stops are at Colwyn Bay and Llandudno Junction with good
views of Conwy Castle as the train progresses to Bangor.
Britannia Bridge is a truly remarkable spectacle as we pass onto
Anglesea. It was the 150th anniversary of the Britannia Bridge
and LMS Black Five No. 45407 was in the area. It followed our
HST into Holyhead and our camera was able to join the steam hauled train part of the way. We were fortunate in obtaining aerial footage courtesy of RAF Valley’s Seaking helicopter as it
crossed the Britannia Bridge. Altogether, a good way to celebrate
150 years of this famous bridge.
