No sheep, but plenty of BAA

Yes, time for another update. For the first time in a very long while I made a trip over to Wales, a land that Blackadder described as a place where “huge gangs of tough sinewy men roam the valleys terrorising people with their close-harmony singing. You need half a pint of phlegm in your throat just to pronounce the placenames. Never ask for directions in Wales Baldrick, you’ll be washing spit out of your hair for a fortnight.”  For protection I met up with Mark Franklin once again, starting off at Newport station at some unholy hour of the day.

After a bit of hanging around, with not a lot happening we decided to go on the train to Cardiff.  This was to give us the chance to see the BAA wagons on the Newport Docks to Margam flow, plus it was a change of scene.

66 041 passes through Cardiff Central in charge of 6Z64 the 14:50 Newport Docks to Margam on the 12th of June 2012

Success, I had been surprised when checking my collection to find I had not photographed any BAA wagons on previous trips to South Wales so apart from one withdrawn BAA residing in Tees Yard that I had pointed my camera at earlier this year it was good to get a decent selection of these at last.
