Cab Ride DVD: Crewe to Holyhead




Celebrating 150 Years of the Britannia Bridge.

Filmed in the cab of Virgin Trains’ HST No. 43160 in 2000 we depart from Crewe station and pass the famous Works buildings.

Chester is the first stop and we continue through Shotton, Flint and Prestatyn before arriving at Rhyl.

Our next stops are at Colwyn Bay and Llandudno Junction with good views of Conwy Castle as the train progresses to Bangor.

Britannia Bridge is a truly remarkable spectacle as we pass onto Anglesea.

It was the 150th anniversary of the Britannia Bridge and LMS Black Five No. 45407 was in the area.

It followed our HST into Holyhead and our camera was able to join the steam-hauled train part of the way.

We were fortunate in obtaining aerial footage courtesy of RAF Valley’s Sea King helicopter as it crossed the Britannia Bridge.

Altogether, a good way to celebrate 150 years of this famous bridge.

Approx. 120 minutes.
