Dad and I spent a day on Cardiff Central station whilst Mum spent his pay away in the shops. We went there not knowing the 47s were due until a kid (about 14) came up to us and told us about them. They were running a railtour from Preston and were 80 minutes late!

Thought about going to see those myself but decided to stay in and shampoo my carpets (sad ass:glasses1: !!). Interesting stock.

Caught a brief glimpse of the 'Times are changing' 158 last time I was down Cardiff - I think a plain black livery really suits these units.

I would also describe the 'visit Bristol' livery as dark blue rather than black. Good pics anyway.
