All Cardiff - Portsmouth units are going up to FIVE days without a wash, due to the fact that Fratton Depot aren't doing them at the moment for some reason & of course ATW won't do themHopefully they'll keep them clean too. The 150 on the Severn Beach Line on Weds was filthy - as are basically all 15x DMUs FGW have ATM.
All fgw units are tatty. And those 158s are the best in terms of interior we have...Went on 103 yesterday, smelling new, looking good except for legroom as per 159s.
As for the end doors, on 103 both ends are windowed with a panel covering up some of it, making the unit look ugly, on 102 the first class end is fully covered - and has a different 'scoop' skirt thing, the other is like 103.
Photos for those interested.
No there not...you obviously haven't been on the very tatty or rancid ones then!All fgw units are tatty.
as if first are realy going to use leather, of course its all vinyl!No there not...you obviously haven't been on the very tatty or rancid ones then!
Are the reliveried units also getting a deep clean or any other TLC?
Also, OOI, regarding the leather seats being fitted to refurbed HST's, what's the view from veggies on these? Presumably, if they will not eat a dead animal, then they would feel uncomfortable sitting on one. Perhaps FGW need to fit a couple of vinyl seats on the HST's as a vegetarian option.
