I have posted this on this board as the SWT (South West Trains) hire 158 works mainly on the Golden Valley Line.  Following conflicting stories, I was wondering if somebody on the inside could say if the lease is still operating.   I made a point of going to see on Wednesday at Gloucester and it's Golden Valley Diagram was an FGW (First Great Western) (150/2) Unit.

Not on the inside, but it's use appears much more sporadic over the last month or so.

It seems a SWT (South West Trains) 158 is back in use on the Golden Valley line.  Seen it quite a few times in recent weeks.

Reviving an old thread...

The hire-in of a South Western 158 ended at the beginning of 2019, with the diagram now being covered by a GWR (Great Western Railway) 150. However, it appears that from the Summer 2019 timetable change it could be reverting to a hired-in 158, if these ECS (Empty Coaching Stock) moves from and to Salisbury come to pass;

What you see now is not necessarily the exact Timetable for May in RTT» (Real Time Trains - website).   What you see re the ECS is what was carried forward from the previous Timetable and, at this stage, some editing will still be required.
