This morning I was up and about earlier than normal (on my way to Southampton Airport) and found myself sat at Thatcham Crossing awaiting a passing train at around 6.15am.

Was quite surprised to see a 180 pull up and stop on a PAD-bound service - is that normal as I've not seen one on the B&H before?

Yes, one morning service from Newbury has been in the hands of a 180 for a couple of years now.

I live and learn, thanks. Guess I'm not normally up and about early enough to see it.
