Lots of conjecture as to what they will be doing whilst the majority of GWR IETs are sidelined with the investigation into cracks that were found in the fleet. GWR is sourcing trains from wherever they can and the rumours are that this set will form a 2+7 HST with two GWR power cars. We will see. An interesting fortnight or so beckons on GWR.

We noticed that 91126 and 91102 still bore nameplates, 'Darlington Hippodrome' and 'City of York'. Hopefully these will be retrieved rather than scrapped and sold in aid of a suitable railway charity.
These locos still seem (in my mind at least) to be relatively new and up to date but in fact they are over 30 years old and have covered millions of miles. I remember 91005 on display at Bristol Bath Road / St Phillips Marsh depot open day on June 29 1991 but other than that for obvious reasons they have never been seen on the Western Region.
