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Withdrawn from passenger service at the end of September, this Class 80 pairing is back in service as a Sandite-spreader and is seen frequently on week-days working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