I have received the email below along with some more nostalgic shots
 by Tom which are reproduced below.
 Many thanks Tom for sharing these great shots.

 

 

Hello Geoff
 
I have come across some of my first photographic efforts (taken with an Instamatic camera).  They are not of the Junction, but they are of Llandudno station.  The quality is pretty poor but I have tried to enhance them during scanning.  I will fully understand if you cannot or do not want to use them on the site.  I just thought they may be of interest to anyone who remembers summer Saturday afternoons when the old platforms 4 & 5 were used as carriage sidings.  They also show the superb roof (albeit foreshortened from it's original full extent).
 
All were taken in August 1979.  I am afraid I don't have a note of the loco numbers but they are clearly classes 40 & 47.
 
All the best for Christmas and New Year
 
Tom Edwards
