Valid only until 6th September 2019 I thought they were staying until at least December 2019.

The current workings are shown as applicable to 6th September. A new set of diagrams will come in on 9th September e.g.using 2F15 0724 Rhymney to Cardiff Central as an example

2F10 0743 Rhymney to Cardiff Central was terminated at Caerphilly. 37418 arrived in Cardiff, on time, with the empty carriages.

Does anyone have any information on this, and whether it will run this evening!

I have been informed that apparently it was a problem with the lights inside.

37418 failed at Tirphil on 2R20 this evening (Shut down) and was assisted in rear by 2R24 with 37421. 2R22 (DMU) was held at Bargoed to allow assistance to precede. Fortunate there are two of them.

Assistance initially requested but the fault was subsequently rectified and 2R20 proceeded without assistance.

It will be interesting to see what configurations run in the morning. Whether 37025 runs alone, and 418 runs with 421 on tow as backup, or do they keep the original formations?

Had just posted here before I read your thread. Other than being dead I don't know the actual cause:-

Saw your other post on the ATW Loco Hauled thread and thought it better to post here, some sort of engine fault rectified by turning it off and on again, and allowing it to cool down.

From tfw journeycheck

Facilities on the 17:46 Cardiff Central to Rhymney due 18:58.
This is due to a train requiring maintenance at a depot.
Will be formed of 3 coaches instead of 4.
Additional Information
Due to a coach requiring extended technicians' attention for bogie and suspension issues at its home depot, this service will be short-formed until at least 16 September.

Has a coach gone back to Burton?
