NIR Class 80 Sandite train

Withdrawn from passenger service at the end of September, this Class 80 pairing is back in service as a Sandite-spreader and is seen frequently on week-days working through Central Station.

Here is it crossing the M3 Rail Bridge on the 26th October. The bright-yellow power-car is the one which has been fitted with the Sandite equipment.


This was an ad hoc recording as we just happened to be in the right place at the right time...
