Looks like the 1R06 1757 London Paddington to Reading (calling at Slough, Burnham, Maidenhead and Twyford) is a DMU this week, while the 2R60 1759 London Paddington to Reading (calling at Ealing Broadway, Southall then all stations) is an EMU. This was originally the case from January but in February they swapped the units to make the stopper a 5-car DMU and the faster one an 8-car EMU.

A couple from JourneyCheck today:

11:00 Bristol Temple Meads to London Paddington due 12:37
Facilities on the 11:00 Bristol Temple Meads to London Paddington due 12:37.
This is due to a fault on this train.
This train will now be formed of the usual number of coaches
.

08:41 Gloucester to Weymouth due 12:09
Facilities on the 08:41 Gloucester to Weymouth due 12:09.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 4 coaches instead of 3.


With these correct and extended formations you are really spoiling us, GWR! Undecided
