    Maybe FGW could keep them for charters as well. I think the day I went to Railfest earlier in the year a FGW HST had hauled a charter up from Devon I think.

    Unveiling in blue for the covenators, so they can see it up close and personal - at least they should be able to see her in all her glory in MUCH better light than today! :D

    Thanks chaps. She might recover the delay by cutting down the Leamington and/or Banbury stops, or she might just get later! I'll put on an extra layer of warm clothes and go out at the planned time!
