The second of the ‘Longsight moaners’ and the artists personal favourite. ‘27 was dual-braked and amongst the common passenger train performers in the winter. By the early 1980s, it was usually found working across the Pennines, coast-to-coast, around the north-west of England and of course, along the north Wales coast to the port of Holyhead. The artist’s most memorable journey with it was in 1982 - his first cab ride on a Class 40, from Llandudno to Chester, It was usually clean, but in the months prior to withdrawl from service, was starting to become something of a scruff - like many at the time.
