Do GWR still run an HST set to Worcester on Sundays? If so, could someone please let me know which pair of services it is?
Thanks very much

Thanks both.
The first pair was the one I was expecting, but I didn't know about the second! Is that likely to continue from the next timetable change?

No useful information to add, however I wanted to say thanks for this information. It could prove useful in a few weeks time when I'm on time off work, as I might well be out that way on a Sunday.

Please tell me cycle storage on the GTi sets is not as bad as on IETs though...

Bike stowage is exactly the same as it was for a TGS now as before.

Bikes are stored in the same place as HST used to have. TGS coaches (Coach A) have been retained for the Castle sets.

Thanks both, that's a relief :) Had a weird feeling that there might not be a TGS these days, I haven't paid much attention to the GTi HSTs. Last time I did any was in 2019, and the few I've seen since then I haven't really looked at much.

I might be using those Sunday services as part of a positioning move back from Bristol next month, as I will be looking to do some cycle touring around that part of the country. We will see if that happens of course.

Thanks again both!

Will this be the same for tomorrow? I see the times might have changed by a couple of mins but do you know if they will still be HSTs?

Whereas the Castle seemed to have alternated between the 1144 and 1338, both of them are Castles today on the change of Timetable.
