26th -31st March 2018

07007 with rakes of former FastLine IIA hoppers. The core rake had been in use on a Colas operated flow from Avonmouth to Aberthaw Power Station, seen here at Newport on 25th January, which was already seasonal, and may have concluded, the last run was on 28th February. The hoppers, built by IRS in Romania in 2008, are here for work to be performed, the nature of which is uncertain.

158888 shows the now superseded two tone grey version of SWR colours. Romsey, 30th March.
