47810 hauls 1D87 to Holyhead at Llanfairfechan on Wednesday 8th September 2004. Photo Copyright: Andy Williams. The summer timetable of 2004 saw the return of the Virgin West Coast HSTs to the leasing company, resulting in all of the Virgin services to and from north Wales being hauled by 47s.
The log sections below will cover those in full, this page in itself covers the period after these workings changed to Voyager/57+Pendolino turns, to the end when Virgin returned their 47s to Porterbrook.
