Another Duffers' Day Out
Boys day out trips ( aka: 'BDO' or 'SAGAlouts outing') tend to get around most places within 2 or 3 hours from home, with Tuesday's jolly being to South Wales, the focus being to capture the first day of Arriva's new Class 67 loco-haulded Cardiff to Holyhead workings. Luck was on our side, and the good 'summer' weather we've enjoyed here in Blightly played game for once and allowed a cracking day out in full sun from first thing right through the day.
