Adrian King’s positive comments about my pictures of Newport have spurred me on to dig out some photos from Cardiff and here are two taken on 17 February 1988 and I have noted that class 155 dmus were to take over the Cardiff to Portsmouth services from the new timetable on 16 May 1988.
Hello Michael 6806 Blackwell Grange was a Penzance engine when I started loco spotting in 1953 where it remained until the late 1950s

Bristol Temple Meads today
A couple of rushed shots at the Western end of Bristol Temple Meads whilst I waited for mt train to Cornwall at 17.45 today.
I always rather like the multi coloured houses.
The HST passed in good light and I held my breath as the sand ran close behind from Burngullow. The result was rather nice with two locos 66126/186 in the original livery - thoughtfully back to back to show off the yellow zig-zags! Gosh we're a fickle lot behind the camera.
All the best

D1010 Western Campaigner hauled this special from Plymouth to Newton Abbot, Exeter St David's, Bristol Temple Meads, Birmingham New Street, Oxford (break) Reading West, Mortimer (photo stop) Salisbury, Yeovil Junction, Exeter Central, Exeter St David's and Plymouth.
A part of this route is outside of our normal website but the few additional pictures I think are worth including.
Many thanks Mike for this considerably detailed extra information.
