Indeed, from what i can remember the SWT service from London Waterloo. Although not sure if this is operated by 159s now-possibly 158s

SWT own 2 158s and they run services to Bristol only.

159s are highly more likely. :)

Ok! thanks for that, never realised how many services they operate in a day down to Paignton considering they run a large amount of services in the south. It has always baffled me why they are called SWT yet do not run many services past Exeter(i think :?)

I guess they are trying to emphasise that they run services South-West of London, London being the centre of the universe. ;)

The main reason for the name of South West Trains is because it is the South West franchise of the third rail region.
