Yes they did talk about a 7 day railway, but not a 24 hour a day 7 day railway.  Maintenance has to be done sometime.

All/most of the 57s are now in GWR green. The vast majority of the Sleeper stock is also now in green.

Indeed, on last night's down sleeper only one coach - B - was in the old livery.



(The stock being taken back to Long Rock by the depot shunter)

Summer hasn't started yet. It is still Spring. The Middle week of Summer will be around the second week in August I think. Smiley
