Shrewsbury - 26th August 1965.

7821 looks in a very poor condtion on 26th August 1965 at Shrewsbury, however in a few minutes time it will head the down Cambrian Coast Express.

With no cabside number plate, name plate or shed plate plus looking filthy, 7821 Ditcheat Manor seems just one step removed from the scrapyard. Looks can be deceptive - at 2.30pm 7821 will head the premier down service of the day to Aberystwyth, the Cambrian Coast Express.

The three recordings, on each of which I have left my father's announcements, are:

A) 73158 running light engine to the shed.

B) 7821 moving stock in the station.

C) 7821 departs on the Cambrian Coast Express.
