Looks like there has been very low voyager availability today as the HST hire-in has been running and so has the Class 90 to Manchester but most unusual has been the hiring of a 150 of FGW to run a service from Bristol to Paignton
But surely in the event of the TOC's own train being not available, it is better to provide some train - even if it is of inferior quality - when the other option is to cancel the service completely.What! That's appauling. Virgin are a cross country operator. Not a 75mph crap trains operator.
