Guy Vincent. 12th August 2017 Many thanks Guy
These are of 60009 'Union of South Africa' with the 'Cathedrals Express', the 0808 1Z50 London (Paddington) - Minehead.
With the impending arrival of new class 800 and 802 bi-mode DEMU's it is unlikely that this scene will be repeated next year although I hope I am wrong! This past week night-time testing of the new traction has been taking place with 800005 and 802002 both observed passing through Westbury. One day you will receive notification from 'our' end that an HST set is unexpectedly en-route to Penzance vice an unavailable 'Flying Cucumber!'
Guy Vincent Many thanks Guy, anybody would think you're not too keen on the 800 and 802's !! I think that there are many who would agree.
