it would have been better to have been on one of the A55 overbridges
to photograph the train but, as it was, I chose to see this historic
event from Penmaenhead and the gale force winds it was experiencing!
After one false start, when a 175 ran ahead of the Royal Train,
the Police helicopter appeared over the track and a plume of
steam from the vicinity of the station, announced the arrival
of the Duchess of Sutherland. Earlier the helicopter
had buzzed the headland to assess the dozens of photographers
and spectators present. Here the train has just come in to view.
