Are those for single or doubled-up IETs? They appear to be replacing HSTs, and the 05.28 from Hereford and 17.22 from Paddington, in particular, need the full capacity... but I'd be surprised to see 5+5s running on the Cotswold Line before work has even started on the platform extensions.

Stopping boards are up for all lengths of IET trains.  Could these be debuts for the 9-car units though?  Although possible, it will be a right pain to have 2x5 Cars until extensions are built, especially at places like Hanborough and Honeybourne.

To view my cab run over the new Reading Viaduct as well as a relief line cab ride at Reading just after Platforms 12-15 opened and my 'before and after' video comparison of the Cotswold Line Redoubling scheme, see:

The first two diagrams are certainly intended to be 9 car 800s.

Selective on a 9car will be little different to an HST
