Do MML HSTs have power sockets and what about First Class, don't they have 2.5 coaches of Fc?

So what's the 07:50 Glasgow to Plymouth Voyager set going to do when it arrives in Plymouth, along with the 13:25 Plymouth to Glasgow, when an HST comes and forms the 07:05 ex Leeds?

How come I wasn't told about these until just now?!

I NEED to do these!

But I'm soooo skint, I can't see how I'll do them! :cry:
Cheapest value fares from Leeds to Bristol Temple M on Friday 23rd for example are:

Leeds to Bristol- None avilable- Standard open single £59
Bristol to Leeds- VT Value 1st- £30

(Adult fare prices)- I could do it for 1/2 that ;)


Seems like to me that VT wont offer any value fares on the way down, but will give VT value 1st on the way back
