May 1980 was the 150th anniversary of the original Rainhill Trials which was won by the "Rocket". In May 1980 British Rail re-enacted these trials on the same stretch of the Liverpool to Manchester Railway.
25298 was a BR built mixed traffic loco with a Sulzer engine, seen here demonstrating the latest car transporter.
