22/05/81 - The first service across the reopened Barnmouth Bridge with the 10:42 from Shrewsbury formed of nine cars. The Pwlleli section unusually headed the formation, being 56343/51189, 51190/56340, 51182/56348, to save time when the Aberystwyth / Phllheli sections split. Chester wagon shops prepared a bi-lingual headboard.

The vehicle carried the following numbers:

56348 - original number
54348 - from Apr-83 (53xxx / 54xxx change)
