150001 and 150002 have been acquired by FGW to operate the Basingstoke - Reading stopper. Been going since end of last month. Used to be Class 165s/166s, 165s/166s are normally on duty in the late evenings. Been plenty of threads on here about them, just search for 150001 or 150002.

150001 and 150002 should work all services Monday-Friday until around 2100 on the line. At the moment though turbos still see a lot of use. 150001 failed in service this morning so 166218 and 150002 have been the two units for most of today.
