|Stock Used||10 coaches|
|?????||??? - Shrewsbury|
|5000||Shrewsbury - Ludlow - Chester|
|46229||Chester - Shrewsbury|

(1) Route & loco confirmation required. David Ingham comments: I photographed 5000 hauling the train between Shrewsbury and Leaton, and at Whittington and photographed 46229 hauling the train at Gresford. I think that 5000 hauled the train from Hereford to Chester and 46229 hauled the train between Chester and Shrewsbury.
46229 at Rhosymedre Halt with a headboard declaring this to be the
"Anniversary Special" of the Welsh Marches Pullman".
