    Hull trains never had a HST before this one as they where an open access operator. Hykeham is not on the Hull line. Its on the Newark to Lincoln line.

    There was a EMT HST from Derby to Skegness and back yesterday not Hull Trains. Quite possibly a crew training run for the HST services in the summer.

    There isn't an entire unreserved coach, but coaches A and B have some unreserved Standard seating.

    I noticed that the Buffet first doesn't have a coach number on it.

    The buffet vehicle is officially coach E (the unreserved coach on the 180s) and I think it has paper labels in the windows. On the HST, you cannot reserve a seat in there, but it is always reserved out with blank labels for use at the guard's discretion - for example for First Class overspill or Weekend First.

    Makes sense - as 43190 was still on the set with 43010 when I saw it yesterday.

    Thank you for posting this. Today, I was able to do 90036 from Leeds to Doncaster, followed by 43190 and 43010 to Hull and back, before travelling with 90019 back to Leeds.

    It’s not quite dud. 165 and 190 were both due off this weekend, however 190 has had a stay of execution for the next few days. It will upon its return to GW be coming off this week and will be swapped with one former celebrity.

    For “celebrity” read power car that had vinyls on that are now out of date and have been removed recently during its E exam.

    I think that's why he said former...

    43027 is my last homeless power car that hasn't yet been stored that is required for 2019 but I'm not counting any chickens on this one. The daily power car requirement for service from Monday on GW is 26 (2x plug door 2+4 sets, 3x slam door 2+ sets, 7x LTP HSS diagrams, 1x SPM-SPM STP HSS diagram) so plenty of scope for something else to turn up.

    I was more making a comment on use of “celebrity”. Slapping some sticky-back plastic on a power car does not make it a celebrity.

    But I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised in these days of z-list “celebrities” on “I’m a Celebrity on Strictly Love Island” on the telly.

    In that logic then, does that not discount 002 & 185 as celebrity power cars? Seeing as they are just Power Cars covered in some sticky back plastic? (Which In the case of 185 is peeling badly).

    And yes, 027 is likely to take place of 190.

    002 is debatable although as first production car it always has some significance. 185 has long had special treatment because of its name - for instance it was used on the GWT launch (after a full repaint in Swallow) way back at the start of privatisation and was one of the first into Merlin livery on that launch as well.

    I've noticed that there are a fair number of cancellations/short starts on Hull Trains today - is there any reason why the HST can't cover some of these turns? I thought that it was hired in to prevent cancellations in case of unreliability.

    You would have thought if Hull trains have got 2X HST sets as been quoted on here & on an other forum that one set could run to Hull on a Monday & RTN on Friday so that set would cover Tuesday to Thursday while the other set RTNs to Bristol PM then they would an HST for 7 days a week

    And plus if it ever stays alive by 2021 it can celebrate the 185th anniversary. (If the year is correct).

    The whole point was to have two sets so one can cover the other for like this instance.
