04:55 Bristol Parkway to London Paddington due 06:46

Facilities on the 04:55 Bristol Parkway to London Paddington due 06:46.

This is due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time.
Will be formed of 5 coaches instead of 10.


A while back I posted about a conversation between a group of regulars and a member of platform staff at Bristol Parkway after a sparkling new 5 car IEP arrived on a test run from North Pole depot.

The member of staff remarked to the regulars that they were replacing the 8 coach HST's with these 5 car IEP's which caused eyebrows to be raised. Them eye brows are raised no more judging by this mornings JourneyCheck.

Will it be coaches A, B, C, D and E or F, G, H, J and K today, bother my seat reservations in the 'instead of 10' portion.
