Evening all,
Went west on Friday to bash the evening Rhymney, a seriously loud run performance from 425, the driver in whack-amps move the whole way. Dean Forest on the Saturday and then back home today.

Leighton-Aylesbury-Oxford slow gyppo bus move both ways, Cardiff travellodge. "Interesting" alternative scenery in Cardiff on Friday and even more Saturday night!

An excellent trip, only downpoint 27066 failing early on after the first trip with low oil pressure/flat battys. Also, only sheds seen on freight thought it was more interesting down there!

A few phots can be found on www.geocities.com/nickrossa2002 , moves and a few spottings below. It works as traction, train, where had to/from.
