Evening all :)

Day 2 of my Freedom of Severn & Solent beckons tomorrow, and after having arrived into Cardiff today on one Olympic service (10:48 London Pad - Cardiff Central, non-stop Newport) I remembered that the 16:15 could also be affected by it.

I see that there are two matches (5pm and 7:45pm Kick off) in Cardiff tomorrow - will the 16:15 Cardiff - Holyhead be loco-hauled?

Thanks in advance.

If it is the same arrangement as last week, the LHCS will be held back to work a 22 31 Spcl. and the 16 15 DMU worked. Perhaps somebody could confirm if this is the case tomorrow

This didn't happen, the 1615 was 67003 and the 2231 was a pair of 150s.

I imagine the WAG may kick off if ATW used the hauled set for something else and put a unit on the 'open access' service which they pay large sums of money for to be hauled with FC/Restaurant facilities.

It will be interesting, however we are in recess time at WG & those from the statutory sector(majority) who use it will be few as August is a dead month for meetings.

1615 ex Cardiff allocated loco-hauled set... Shown as 'on diagram' so looks like that was the ATW plan all along.

Thank you very much. Makes coming over on this wedged HST worth it. Ok, so I could have had my first experience of a 175, but I came over for the 67. Thanks again :)
