Reverses at Gloucs and BTM. Its a lovely trip. Done it a few times. Slow it is. But I would recommend it as you can see some great areas of Wessex07:08 Worcester Shrub Hill to Weymouth due 11:00
Facilities on the 07:08 Worcester Shrub Hill to Weymouth due 11:00.
Toilet facilities are not available.
Are they going to change at Bristol Temple Meads for a different train going forward?
Toilets are a key issue the industry seems to struggle with.
Fundamentally there are too many units running around with only one of the things.
Yes in theory. There are water hoses on platform 1. Ive seen them.Pre Covid I was told they were not used as there is less than 15 mins turnaround on this diagram at Weymouth, 1056 arr, 1110 dep.Potentially the toilet may have run out of water. It can be refilled
Yes. What I don't understand how the train which starts at 0600 from Gloucester to Worcester, then down to Weymouth just over an hour later has no working toilets, I saw it go past my house, a 166. The unit must have arrived Tuesday evening faulty, to lay over in gloucester sidings.I think the observation is more about the lack of loos

2 summers ago I had the 1730ish train back from Weymouth to Bristol. Sunny day, train packed. But this train had done Gloucester-Southampton - great malvern- weymouth-bristol. It was a class 150 and 158. This train arrived on time at 1710 ish. But the 2 toilets in the 158 were out of use, presumably out of water or waste tank full doing the all day diagram, Leaving the 150 on its own, added at Bristol on its way down.Not a great experience.
