Colas Rail's 56094 ran light from Cardiff to Fishguard and back this afternoon, 30th March 2021. Does anyone know why? I can't remember the last time I saw a 56 in West Wales - see shot attached of the loco on its return journey at Pembrey and Burry Port station.

Just wondering if it might not just be a "route knowledge trip". Please bear in mind I've no idea about operations in south-Wales. Just the first thing that came to mind.

These light trips are usually for Route Learning/Refreshing
