There was an earlier special 1Z76, the 10.15 to non-stop to Oxford. This took almost an hour, running late until Twyford. It formed the 1Z77 back to Paddington

There seems to have been a high speed special today. 1Z77 Covered Oxford to Paddington in just under 39 minutes

Interesting piece from the ever informative CRS about the June 1st special.
Note the comment about two power cars being sent to Taunton and what might have been.

Thanks Richard, that's appreciated. It's always good to have feedback, whether positive or negative. I note that the post has been referred to someone involved with PR at Shildon. I'm there tomorrow and will ask. Do bear with me and many thanks. Anthony.

Aghast at what you wrote, I have sent the link via a private Twitter message to Anthony, Senior Curator of Rail Transport and Technology at the National Railway Museum. I will let you know of any reply.

I had to go to Cardiff back then to be examined for a PhD. I was able to catch the prototype HST  from Paddington to Reading. Then get the Cardiff train from there, which was routed via Bath.
Sadly the day went downhill from there.....

Heighington was where Locomotion No1 was placed on the rails. The original station is just to the south of the level crossing. You can just make out the very low platform on Street View. The current station dates from WWII.
