DMU Used ?????

Route :

DMU Route
as listed Upholland - Wigan - Chester - Shrewsbury - Towyn
as listed Towyn - (?reverse of outward route?)  - Upholland

Notes :
(1) Andrew Fairholm comments: I think I recall being on the platform at Tywyn Wharf (Talyllyn Railway) that day waiting the arrival of this 3 or 4 car DMU and hopefully good numbers streaming up from the BR station ... an extra train would be brought down from Pendre and would run if the number of tickets sold on the BR train justified it. .. If not, a couple of coaches might be added to the regular service and the rest sent back.

From the Andrew Fairholm ticket collection.
