On Saturday 16th June 2018, Arriva Trains Wales hired 158766 from Great Western Railway and allocated it
to a diagram that would see it visit Fishguard Harbour and Pembroke Dock. You are working the first leg,
as far as Swansea.
With the Severn Tunnel closed for 3 weeks of electrification work, on weekdays GWR were operating one
morning peak service from Cardiff to Bristol, and return in the evening, via Gloucester. At the weekends,
the unit was spare at Canton, and with ATW suffering a unit shortage, it was hired for the day.
