 A green, lean machine or tilting trains on the North Wales Coast!!! 47816 leaning on the super elevation as it enters Colwyn Bay with the 13.20 Holyhead-London. Note the boarded up windows on the foot bridge that First North Western promised to repair before they vacated the coast line last year! Never trust a TOC? 29/6/2004

 Barely enough room to take a frontal shot as the Virgin train waits to depart. 29/6/2004
