Needs a driver mind.

Unless a driver can make do on 3 hours' kip at EXD, they'll need two. Just when more than usual need repairs.

A 47 and 2 barrier vehicles collected the 4 carriages,

Left Doncaster 95 late. Just passed Abbotswood junction 51 late, so it’s shifting well.

Facebook group video shows the 4 carriages, confirming no power cars in the formation. Plug doors, except on the cycle door which is still slam and not in contrasting colours.   Look nice from what I could tell in a short video of the train passing though Temple Meads.

The first set of re-engineered carriages will be out testing in Devon & Cornwall this weekend.

Work on interior fittings continues at Laira.

 Had a good look at one yesterday, quite smart although the single door 'sliding' does look a bit odd.

 But seems to work fine, no disabled wheel-chair space though.
