Front three quarter? Hardly an unusual angle, :o but let the next one stay as charter train ( not passenger unless an unusual working/ route - please explain )
The electricity industry is missing out on a great bit of publicity, "how many years the original battery sets they provided have lasted". Perhaps they should give them a modern replacement set for such a staggering performance.

Don't knock it Bufferstop! At least it's not a regurgitated repeat and it is unusual (even if the angle isn't)

My take on the unusual was that this is actually a diesel hauled BEMU - because they (Deeside Railway) need a serious chunk of ££££ for new traction batteries. I've also got a shot head-on from track level and an inside view.

The original set came courtesy of the electricity supply industry, and went on working way, way past their predicted life. Replacing them with modern equivalents would be a good publicity move on the part of the present day industry.
