158957 at Newport 2nd April 2016

Great Western Railway Class 158 DMU No. 158957 calls at Newport as it works the 1F12 11:54 Bristol Temple Meads to Cardiff Central service on 2nd April 2016. Although there are a few people alighting from the train, there doesn't appear to be anyone waiting to board which seems quite unusual for a train heading to the Welsh capital at lunchtime on a Saturday. The reason for this is that passengers had been waiting on platform 2, across the lines to the left of the train. A last minute announcement as the train arrived told passengers of the change to platform 1 and a mad dash over the footbridge ensued!
