Morning folks, :D

On June 8th, Dawlish air show takes place once again in the South West. From reading the timetable on the day that FGW have produced http://www.dawlishairshow.co.uk/DawlishAirShowLeaflet2012V2.pdf , not only do some XC services seem to be making addtional stops on some services where they would normally go non-stop Newton Abbot to Exeter, but also an additonal FGW service from Newton Abbot to Exeter, such as this one http://traintimes.im/rail-service/V20253/2012/06/08/

Does anyone know what is going to be used for these additional services? Can we expect to see a HST or something to provide this extra capacity, or just a couple of pacers or 150s?

As FGW have just got a lot of extra units, it will probably be 150s.

A few years ago it was 67s but then there were no spare units

FGW don't really have any units just sitting around though. I expect units will be used on these services but they will have to be released by something so either an HST or SWT units again I'd expect on Taunton-Cardiff services.

I see, cheers for that. I thought the answer would be standard Sprinters, but you never know, it could have been something a bit out of the ordinary. Thanks for the answers guys :)
