    380111 Edinburgh to Wester Hailes on 20/12.

    It was a 'long' time since I'd been on a 380 and it was striking how much more pleasant it was than my usual 385 fare.

    Last journey of 2019 for me was 170505 on the 17:50 Birmingham New Street-Hereford on 27th December 2019. By cripes that was a busy train!

    First train of 2020 might be tomorrow, heading to Birmingham. If not, it'll be on Tuesday afternoon.

    A class 455 with no doubt 456 attached too. Surbtion to Guildford on Monday 30 December.

    My first train of the new year may also be a class 455/456 service. So nothing too exciting.

    A 450 between London Waterloo and Woking on the 24th, believe it was the 1715 service to Portsmouth Harbour. Was very punctual, did the journey in 24 mins.

    Several trains on 30th December. I travelled on a 12-car Class 450, a 10-car Class 456 and 455, a 2009 tube stock and a 4-car class 315, which, despite running on a London Overground service, it still bears its TfL Rail livery.

    My last train trip of 2019 was the 19:22 from London Paddington back to Oxford (First Class) on a 9-car IET which, due to the tragedy at Maidenhead, was 35-40 minutes late. I didn't do a delay repay as a persons family and friends would have a significantly worse Christmas.

    Also GWR did excellent at Paddington remaining calm to people asking about their trains!

    Also, the 19:22 was the biggest delayed train I caught in 2019 (and since on a CrossCountry service on the 13/09/19 which due to an axle counter failure was also 35-40 minutes late).

    My last train of 2019 was a Santa Special on the East Lancs Railway. Bizarrely this was also my FIRST train of 2019 - I don't live very near a station!
