A rare visitor
A rare visitor
An EWS heavy freight class 66 locomotive at Aberystwyth. Such visits are rare as there is no regular rail freight to the town. It is believed that this visit was in connection with driver training for the new ETRMS signalling system currently being installed on the Cambrian lines. The siting of the signalling radio masts has caused much local consternation and one village has successfully campaigned to have masts relocated. See LinkExternal link.
