North Wales Coastal

North Wales Railtour Rescue

By 317Dan for North Wales Coastal (+ Holyhead Extension)

It's the 19th of July 2020, and many passengers have boarded the 'North Wales Coast Express' in Liverpool, ahead of a day out behind Black 5 No. 44871 to Holyhead and back. At around 12 noon, disaster strikes! The loco develops a fatal leak and blows out a large amount of piping hot water onto the track, and the loco has to be looped at Holywell Junction ahead of a fitter's attention. Because of safety reasons, the fire is dropped, and the whole charter is relying on you, the rescue loco, do take the train, with the steam loco in tow, to Holyhead, so at least the passengers can get their money's worth!
