    I was at Cheltenham Spa earlier this evening waiting for the 2010 to Leeds.

    A few minutes before it was due a northbound loco hauled train went though which seemed to consist of two sets of FGW HSTs with the power cars replaced with normal loco hauled coaches

    Real time trains suggests it was en route from Laira to Kilmarnock - I'm curious to know why and what for rather than just guessing.

    Mark 3 HST coaches going to Kilmarnock for overhaul with a DB Class 66 providing the traction

    I saw a turbo in those colours for the first time yesterday. What a dull uninspiring livery that is

    Previously discussed. A couple of links:-

    There has also a lengthy thread about transportation by road but I can't turn it up at the moment.

    Probably not - I think only the set that has been done will receive the green livery
