    Can anyone confirm current position - some references to them working to Cardiff?
    Are there still two now that one SWT 158 has gone to EMT?

    As far as I know it is one 158 (could be any) on a fixed diagram that goes up to westbury coupled to a FgW unit in the morning works a few services in the Gloucester area then comes back from Bristol as a SWT service?

    Will a 159 be on hire to FGW for the Brighton this summer ? Nothing to suggest so yet

    The first working for the day for the hired in 158 (which as other posters have said, changes on a day to day to basis) I believe is the 7:04 Westbury - Cheltenham, which then forms a Cheltenham - Swindon service. (Leaves the former around 9:15).

    Today it was 158883 (I was on it!)

    Am I right on thinking it has a different diagram on Saturday? It turns up frequently on the 09:51 Westbury - Bath Spa. Does anyone have the diagram for its run after this? Does it run ECS to Bristol or Swindon?
