Thats what I thought at the time! Very smart indeed, better than the Barbie livery by far! :)

That livery really does make the HSTs look younger! Was going to go and see it at Reading today as it is only twenty minutes away but simply went back to sleep. Wish I'd gone now.

Those power cars have seen three liveries in the past few months - Angel, Barbie and now the new FGW colurs!

Good thing you didn't Sam! They went to Bristol Temple Meads not Parkway or Yate!

It was on a working to Penzance, I presume it went to Long Rock (do they do FGW?) or something like that.

Well it's working 5Z30 so no idea where it's heading. I wouldn't expect it to work to BTM. Unless going to SPM instead.
