DOes history relate as to whether 165127 has had air cooling fitted yet?
43154/186 both now repainted green at Wabtec Doncaster.
A dynamics livery 165 left Reading yesterday, I thought they'd all been repainted?
There are some all-over blue ones still - 201/203/221 off the top of my head in the East Fleet
166209 has also been working off Reading this week
166221 is still all blue - not sure if this had already been posted. I just spotted it at Basingstoke. Sorry for the terrible photo, captured it while moving on another train.
(Hello, by the way. Trying to become a tad more active and post!)
802021 has the nose end stickers (seen today).
150207 returned from Doncaster Friday night and is now at SPM in GWR Livery
800035 now has the nose end logos.
150207 looking splendid in full GWR colours on Bristol to Westons today.
Beaten to it
It's not a race.
802011 now carries two names.
On vehicle 1, "Capt. Robert Falcon Scott RN CVO" (subtitle "Scott of the Antarctic" with an outline of the continent).
On vehicle 5, "Sir Joshua Reynolds PRA" (subtitle "Celebrating 250 years of the Royal Academy of Arts" with building image behind name). The image make some of the name very difficult to read.
Usually the two names have a related theme. Does anyone know what R F Scott and J Reynolds had in common (I don't!)?
Both appear to be from Plymouth - although technically Reynolds is from Plympton (a suburb of Plymouth).
Worth noting as well that the GWR website doesn't yet show 802011 as being one of their "named Intercity Express Trains". https://www.gwr.com/about-us/modernising-gwr/iet/named-trains
With all due respects - GWR are at least naming their trains with some historic and national importance. I think the cab disk things are a stupid idea. You can never really beat a full size cast name plate..
I believe the structural bodywork of the 80x family will beg to differ...
802020 noted yesterday (21 Jan) with the nose end logo at the standard class end only.
IET unit numbers are supposed to go either side of the driving vehicles under the large GWR logo. For some reason at least one 'corner' of 800007 is unnumbered (standard class vehicle, left side as seen by the driver; seen 22 Jan).
Do we know how many turbos are currently allocated to Bristol and how many will be eventually allocated?
The former worked the 1501 Plymouth - Paddington today.
800006 now has nose end logos, etc.
Is 158958 back out after it’s refurb yet?
800010, 800036, 802009, 802016, 802019, 802022 now all have the nose logo etc.
802108 & 802019 have been delivered with nose logos etc. already applied.
Think I saw it at Barton Hill yesterday so probably won’t be long. Only 158955, 158960 and possibly 158763 left to do now if my calculations are correct. Hopefully 955 first as that unit looks really haggered.
The order doesn't depend on the cosmetic condition as we saw with two 150/2s
I would have to agree as 955 does look a bit run down but knowing GWR it will be the last one to be done
And your basis for such a statement is...
Off the record but I used 158960 at the weekend and was surprised that the condition inside (and paint work externally) was all in fairly good condition. Interesting how it varies.
As does 800005 today (14 Feb).
800033 also has GWR nose end logos.
