Today a rather unique ECS took place operating from Exeter-Fueling Point going to Bristol-SFM.Running as '5Z74' it comprised three 'Donkeys'.They were 143611/143618 and 143620.They were routed this way via Fairwood at Westbury as the more direct route from Taunton up to Bristol is still currently closed due to extreme flooding.Probably going to SFM in Bristol for servicing as their normal service-depot Laira-Plymouth is unavailable because of the Dawlish Sea Wall collapse.

A combination of 143604 and 150278 from Arrive-Trains-Wales runs down the fastline at Duffryn going to Cardiff-Central.I presume this is an extra shuttle type service aimed at all the passengers wanting to depart from Cardiff after the Rugby International against Ireland that was due to finish about now.No timetabled working matching this path!

The usual photo opportunity off this bridge was in the early morning (07:00 to 07:30) however just for a change a late afternoon shot was tried here at Tir-Phil on the Rhymney-Valley Line.To confuse people even further it is a shot of a 'Bouncy-Bus' 143069 sporting the local Welsh-Valley Lines livery.This working from Rhymney was slowing for the station.This was the second stop after Pontlottyn from the top of the line.This particular working appears to be going to Penarth although it fact it is probably only going as far as Cardiff.
