One other thing I have noticed on my various trips on the IETs.  I don't know what the external cleaning regime is, but every one I have travelled on has had dirty windows

Yes I have noticed that as well. It is as though the windows have been washed but the process has not been completed, ie not rinsed/polished. It is like looking through a fog and does not give a good impression. I wonder if GWR have taken this up this with Hitachi?

Ironically, an empty 8 coach HST followed the packed 5-coach 1A82 out of Plymouth. The HST was working 5Z66 Laira to Bristol SPM and is the train that will be used for tomorrow's HST farewell railtour.

GWR told police that Hitachi owned the rights to the CCTV and GWR could not access it.

Interesting fact, and if correct, could affect any future legal cases.

Journey Check has 1A81 7.41 exPNZ as 5 coaches vice 8, so presumably IET.

There's an ECS 5C84 at 1050 from Bristol to Paddington, which looks like a replacement HST and form 1C84 1403 to Penzance.

Think that might be the first time the sleeper has been replaced by an IET rather than an HST. Not that will much comfort for those involved. 

Will be interesting to see how passengers cope with the rock-hard seats!

Much to my surprise their was an HST on the 1133 Paddington to Carmarthan  today.  When I saw it at Paddington I was hoping that it was booked for the 1130 Paignton - hopes dashed.

It's then due to work:
1L90 1655 Carmarthen to Paddington
1C33 2206 Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads
