As well as the BAA traffic passing through Cardiff we had plenty of variety running through Cardiff in the afternoon.  If I am honest we were bored silly at Newport, and when we first arrived at Cardiff it wasn’t much better.  It seemed a lot of the freight traffic for the day decided it did not wish to run, joy.  One train that did run, but then threw out photography options for a couple of hours was 6A97 14:34 Grange Siding to Acton Yard.  Booked to pass through Cardiff Central at 15:39 hours it arrived outside the station at 13:33, entered the through lines and then sat there, and sat there, not leaving until 17:50.  This meant freight from the west had to pass through platform one which made for some really rubbish options on where to stand.

The above train messed up the freight from the west so much that I have decided to not even post the images I took of the KSA timber wagons on the Baglan Bay to Chirk service.  Suffice to say I made one of those judgement calls where to run to for the shot, and got it wrong.  The service itself sat outside of Cardiff for a long time, then when it started moving I had enough time to just get to where I thought I could shoot the wagons, got there, and found it was a bad shot.  Oh well, another time.

One train that took us by surprise for its consist was 6B67 11:16 Margam to Llanwern, the consist shown below was pulled off at the end of the working day so it doesn’t show the three oil tanks tagged on the back?!  Then again there were other wagons I photographed which are not listed in the consist.  Here is a link for all the images I shot.

On leaving Cardiff to go home, and Mark to head back to Newport we figured we might have a chance of seeing some traffic from the passing train so we were actually prepared with cameras in hand when we saw 6E01 17:17 Cardiff Docks to Peterborough ahead of us on the slow line.  One advantage of passenger traffic down there, HSTs are in abundance so one can shoot out of the open windows.
