    Yes it has a rather annoying habit of shutting down when full power selected.....

    Not today.
    Unsure of workload and time that it will be at Reading before we get it.

    We've just shunted & reformed the Sleeper set for tonight's 1C99 - no 10229, still sat in the yard on it's lonesome.

    Will 1C99 start at Paddington tonight? Works in Cornwall mean it's only going as far Plymouth so starting at Reading tonight would mean a pretty short sleep for a those on a sleeper.

    GWR Journey Check and Tyrell messages approximately 30 minutes ago state 1C99 to start at Reading again. 1C36 to be held 15 minutes at Paddington. Hopefully this is just an example of publishing the worst case scenario early just in case.

    Third and final brake coach to be refurbished, 17175 has rejoined us from Wolverton. RFMB 10225 has taken its place as the final vehicle in the fleet to be done.

    This is very much dependent upon the number of HSTGTi's in service in time...... .

    The last blue coach, buffet 10232 makes its last down trip tonight and its last trip in service on Fridays' up. White buffet 10229 will be tripped up to Reading tomorrow night too, not in use, but should be in service on the down on Jan 1..... .
    2nd refurbished buffet 10219 should be delivered from Wolverton to Reading tomorrow but will most likely spend Christmas there before being worked down to us before entry into service in place of the white one which will go back spare until 10225 is finished.
