how long did it take?
Jim said:To be frank, that would be ablivious, no matter what stock does it, only the HST (mainly) routes are classified as High Speed.

LucaZone said:What confuses me is that the franchise was announced as 'First Great Western Express' ' First Great Western Link' and 'First Great Western Local'?
Seeing as FGW Link already Existed and FGW was the HST & 180 services, why have they not kept the designations since the franchise started on April 1st?
First Great Western Link is now First Great Western
First Great Western is now First Great Western High Speed Service (wheres Express gone!)
Andrew said:Main problem with that is that Oxford fasts would be First Great Western Link on that logic, when they're clearly not a stopping service (standard calling pattern Reading, Slough though some call Reading only and one calls Didcot, Maidenhead). I don't know what these services are announced as at Didcot - they're a high speed service, but ex-FGWL.
