    Restricted to 100MPH with 4 coaches, I believe (but I'm happy to be corrected) that if they have 5 or more they can do 125MPH

    It might be the motor under the Mark 3 coach. I've had that when I've sat in roughly the middle Mark 3 coach.

    When I catch a Castle HST (probably early next year on a shorter trip when they're all refurbished), I'll try and aim for the single seat in the TGS depending on how the train is formed (meaning if it's forward facing). I bet that seat is a favourite for us rail enthusiasts but particularly those that want a seat to themselves!

    Possibly. Though it isn't really that noisy.

    Need the OP to respond, really.

    I wonder when 43158 & the coaches for GW11 will go to Doncaster for refurbishment? GWR now has 6 out of 11 of the castle sets.

    Unfortunately it'll not be just before GW12.

    Yes I know there's only 11 sets, but I'm sure they could easily find a use for an extra set or two.

    Of that pool, only 43158 remains to be done - and that's now at Doncaster.

    At home we have a fan which has a motor - I'm guessing the Mark 3's have one of those in them.
