The first rugby match at the new Millennium Stadium in Cardiff took place on Saturday 26 June 1999, with Wales playing South Africa. In connection with the event, the Cardiff Railway Company used non ETS Class 37s on the Rhymney line. Here we see 37198 accelerating away from Pontlottyn with the 2F17 09:15 Rhymney to Cardiff Central.
