An unconfirmed report suggested the sets had returned as 5Z71 1205 Barton
Hill – Tyseley Lmd (1451) which departed Parkway at 1320 (57 late) and may
have been a driver route learning trip although another source suggests
Barton Hill could be used to maintain and stable this type of unit instead
of at Tyseley where London Midland will lose their franchise from December
2018 to West Midland Trains who need additional space here at this depot.

Later, the Barton Hill rhtt (3S59) top n’ tailed with 66152 + 66024 was
recorded in Temple Meads at 2321 on the up through line having visited
Westbury and was waiting to head to South Wales via Avonmouth.
From Tuesdays-Fridays the train as in previous years is booked to visit
Westbury, Avonmouth, Cardiff Central, Ebbw Vale, Abergavenny, Gloucester,
Portbury (WO) and Weston-super-Mare.
What could have been a serious incident between Highbridge and Bridgwater
on a road over bridge involved a person standing in a dangerous position
looking as if they could fall as the 1S39 0625 Plymouth – Glasgow Central
(1612) Arriva XC Voyager service approached the driver applying the
emergency train brake.
In the end the person was safe (although it was unclear whether the police
had been involved) but the train was delayed the working not passing
Highbridge & Burnham station until 0836 (33 late), arriving Temple Meads
at 0856 (29 late) and departing here at 0858 (28 late).

15/10 Emergency engineering work at Reading (which commenced during the

Both the 4B35 Southall – Moreton-on-Lugg stone empties (with 66055 de-
allocated) and 6C03 Southall - Severnside Sita refuse container services
were cancelled.
An engineering train record was; 70805 + 70803 top n’ tailing a 6C26 0651
Stapleton Road – Westbury loaded spoil move from work on Filton bank which

passed Bradford junction at 0802.

16/10 Launch day for the new Hitachi IEP Class 800 trains a number of
sets now having accumulated the required 5,000 problem free miles to enter
frontline passenger duty.
However, a coupling problem at Stoke Gifford saw 800005 + 800006 arrive
Temple Meads at 0617 (43 late) and depart at 0626 (26 late) with the 1A03
departure to Paddington the very first IEP worked GW public passenger
train.
With Transport Minister Chris Grayling traveling a station announcement
stated the service with the IEPs had initially been cancelled and a HST
set with power cars 43040 + 43143 standing on platform 7 was to be used on
the 1A03, but an update stated IEP sets were now en-route although a
platform had not been decided, 15 being used as originally planned in the
end.
For the event the clock tower frontage on the approach road was lit with
green and blue light and white spotlights were pointed into the sky and a
fire work display took place in the old Royal Mail lorry loading bay area
(next to platform 15) as the sets departed.
This was not the end of the day’s story as coach H later suffered an air-
con failure and water dripped from the carriage ceiling a passenger’s lap
top being damaged.
Also the pantograph failed to engage at Maidenhead for electric power the
train running on diesel throughout, some reported passing time records for
the journey being; departing Chippenham at 0653 (27 late), Swindon 0709
(27 late) and arriving Paddington at 0826 (41 late).
With a defective coach the two units were taken out of service on arrival,
the next booked departure, the 1B12 0815 Paddington – Cardiff Central
service (and the 1L51 1055 return) being cancelled, a HST set formed 43126
LA14 W43002 later working the 1B40 1345 Paddington – Swansea part of the
diagram.
Meanwhile the other booked (and now daily) IEP diagram starting with the
1C03 0700 Paddington – Bristol TM was in the hands of 800008 + 800009 and
reported as overall trouble free using the overhead wires as far as
Maidenhead (as booked) passing Slough at 0712 (4 early), arriving Reading
at 0724 (4 early) and Temple Meads 0852 (6 late).
These two IEP sets later became the first to work a passenger train into
South Wales with the 1B28 1145 Paddington – Swansea service which passed
East Usk (Newport) at 1330 (3 late) and Margam East junction 1422 (3 late)
the arrival in Swansea being at 1446 (4 late).

17/10 Not another good day for the new IEP 1A03 0600 service to
Paddington which was diverted via Bristol Parkway due to a Signalling
problem at an unspecified location.
Sets 800008 + 800009 were believed to be working this train as they were
later reported departing Swindon at 1450 (6 late) working the 1B40 1345
Paddington – Swansea service which is a booked part of the diagram
starting the day with the 1A03.

18/10 68002 + 68033 were used on the 6V74 Crewe Coal sidings –
Bridgwater nuclear flasks which passed Abbotswood junction at 0540 outward
and Worle junction 1224 having departed Bridgwater at 1203 on the 6M63
return and another area arrival during the day was 67012 + 67030 top n’
tailing a Victoria – Bath and return VSOE outing.
The 1A03 0600 Bristol TM – Paddington GW service IEP diagram would appear
to have been worked by Class 800 sets as the 1B40 1345 Paddington –
Swansea part was again noted arriving Swindon at 1445 this time with
800005 + 800006.

0824 Portbury – Fiddlers Ferry which passed Abergavenny at 1114.
A further public consultation period regarding the reopening of the
Portishead line to passenger trains as part of phase1 of the Metro West
area rail project commenced towards the end of October.
Funding is still an issue and work may not properly start until 2020 and
it is possible the Henbury spur (part of phase 2 of the project) could be
brought forward and passenger trains could be up and running before a
service starts on the Portishead line.
A half hourly timetable from Severn Beach – Keynsham and Bath forms
another part of phase 1 and phase 2 will also see improved services north

of Bristol as far as Yate.
A number of public exhibitions will be showing the latest details of the
project on certain dates during November in Portishead, Ashton Gate, Long
Ashton, Pill and at Temple Meads (the Engine Shed centre) and 100 Temple
Street, Bristol.

100 Great Westerners campaign by the Bristol Post, Western Daily Press,
Trinity Mirror West (who produce the ‘in house’ GW Magazine) and GWR.
These were found to be the top 50 people and organizations from around the
Great Western region which have made successful inspirational
contributions to different areas and communities in a number of forms.
The 50 names read as follows;
Agatha Christie, Banksy, Barbara Hepworth, Bob Woodward, Capt Robert
Falcon Scott, Charles Causley, Dame Agnes Weston, Dave Vanstone, David
Penhaligon, Donald Cameron, Dylan Thomas, Edward Jenner, Eileen Bartlett,
Elizabeth Ralf, Emma West, Fleur Lombard, Freya Bevan, Hollie Chown,
Isambard Kingdom Brunel, J.K.Rowling, James Janes, John Christensen, John
James, John Wesley, Johnny Johnson MBE, Juliet Poynter, Kathryn Osmond,
Kevin Mashford, Laura Plane, Micheal Eavis, Nancy Astor, Paul Brian, PC
Mark Freshwater, Plymouth Lifeboat Crew, REV Robert Stephen Hawker,
Richard Trevithick, Rick Rescorla, Sarah Long, Sir Francis Drake, Sir
George White, Sir Humphrey Davy, Sir James Dyson, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Sir
Terry Pratchett, Steve Whiteway, Thomas Newcomen, Tom Jones, William
Cookworthy, William Gilbert (WG) Grace, Zachariah Wallis.
As can be seen from the list a number of these names have been carried by
locos or HSTs (or are carried by HST power cars in current service) in the
past, Sir Tom Jones being the name once carried by ‘Pacer’ set 143609!
50 individually produced coins will also be designed to honour the
individuals or organizations, historically being similar to the ones
carried by the Great Western Railway’s steam loco 6000 King George V
(which carries two gold examples) presented by the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad Company in 1927 as part of its centenary celebrations.

18/10 As the Magazine was going to press, further HST power cars 43033,
43036, 43134 and 43148 had all been taken out of traffic by GW before a
move from Laira to St.Phillips Marsh and eventual transfer to Scotland.
