A little oddity - the 14:21 PAD:WOF is being reported as running with nine coaches today.

This train has 9 coaches. 1st Class is at the REAR

I was wondering about that but didn't think we'd see one on the Cotswold Line for a while yet. Quite encouraging.

An oddity in that it hasn’t been seen before I suppose, but yes, 800304 has got the honour.

It would surprise me if it was running DOO though as that would well and truly get the unions into a frenzy.  A Worcester based driver was allocated to it so he definitely wouldn’t have driven it DOO.  DOO test ‘shadow’ trains have been operating in passenger service though.

Sorry if I’m being thick - it’s been a long day - but what’s a DOO test shadow train?

See my post here, Bob:

http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=18792.msg239405#msg239405

Basically to train up LTV drivers who will be driving them DOO, and to test dispatch procedures etc.  They are running as 1Zxx and are available for passenger use.  Here is an example of one from yesterday:  http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/O08091/2018/06/12/advanced
