6th May 2001 and, having
not been able to see DMU class 101 number 101685 nicknamed "Daisy"
on the outward run to Blaenau Ffestiniog, I decided to catch
it passing through Glan Conwy. With the train scheduled to work
through Glan Conwy station at 16.10 I lay in wait and, dead on
time, a train appeared rounding the curve - it was 150142! What
happened to "Daisy"? - well apparently it was not refuelled
on Saturday night and could only make one run out, hence the
class 150 deputising. Information from Charlie Hulme's fantastic
North Wales Coast Railway site.
