Its not unusual Jordy :) I went from Parkway to Cardiff Central in a (temporarily) declassified TFO on a fGW HST. It was standing in for a TSO. This is usually when they have/find a defect with the original coach, and so have to remove it from the set. If they have no TSOs to replace the faulty one at the depot, they will stick any old coach in, and its better than a short-formed set :|

Ive seen a few rakes of fGW stock with TFOs in the formation,a nd even a set with a TGS at either end before! :shock:

Sprog is right, it happens a bit with FGW. Naturally, when it does happen, and it's on my service, it's excellent, extra comfort for no extra cost! Although it is usually 41180 when it happens!

Never happened to me on GNER, but it has happened to me on FGW (unfortunately while I was getting tickets the person supposed to be holding our seats decided to get off the train, so we lost them and had to go in normal standard :( ).

King's Cross to Inverness in declassified FC would be pretty good ;)

Just to let you know the 7:40 Leeds-KX GNER had a MML 1 class coach in the formation.
This is interesting. Is this another MML coach in a GNER formation? I'm sure there was a standard one knocking about recently as well.

I would be happy with a MML coach in standard especially, as they are more pleasant and modern then their GNER counterparts :)
