As said above, my 'contact' told me it is in Road 3 of Reading shed but they changed the subject when I asked about the livery. It is indeed 166220 though.

T'aint a secret!
It was at Paddington platform 9 as reported by a good friend of mine, and was also noted at Midgham and Maidenhead the other day :)

If it is supposed to be a secret they're bloody crap at hiding it!

Uggh What an ugly thing ;)
Not my 158s :( Do the crappy 150s first! Give em a nice refurb aswell!
The 150s were only refurbished a few years ago!

The 158s are in dire need of refurb, or even a good clean - oh, and working Aircon please :fucyc:

There's a picture of the turbo at Paddington in the latest Railway Herald that was sent out today for some reason, despite being dated as normal for tomorrow.

Ha, thats a funny looking 158! it has 2 bogies at the front! Obviously the Photoshoppers really spent alot of time on that one!
Why did they even need to mess around with anything below the carriage side?
