25 Years Ago Archive - June 1978
1977 to 1980 were the peak years of my photographic activity, and this page gives me an opportunity to show a single image, taken 25 years ago this month. Images will change every month, and will not appear elsewhere on the site - although the train or working may do so.
Another month goes by and 24082 is once again working the extra passenger diagram along the North Wales Coast. This is the 16:42 from Llandudno to Crewe arriving at Chester on Friday 30th June 1978. See last month's picture for more information on this working.
Just visible to the right is Chester No 4 signal box. This controlled the junction between the Holyhead and Birkenhead lines, and most of the signals in the picture. Chester had 6 signal boxes at this time working a mixture of semaphore and colour light signals - more details on the Chester page.
