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.
