Title: Where have all the turbos gone? Many trains passing [all 15x]
Post by: grahame on March 06, 2018, 07:04:54 pm
Haven't seen a single Turbo today - been up and down TransWilts several times, seen lots of other trains (150/2, 158 2 and 3 car and even some 150/1s).    Co-incidence, or has there been a turbo issue?

I suspect you'll find them on the Cotswold Line, where 2/3 car Turbos are being used instead of HSTs.

Pretty sure I saw a Turbo at Temple Meads earlier today. The Thames Valley ones were certainly operational as my connection from Worcester to Charlbury was one!
