Following comments from my daughter, I thought I'd open this to the wider audience.

I was out at Whiteball photting the Torbay Express and noticed an oddity in one of my pictures. Let the imagination run wild and comment what you can see on the back of the signal on the left hand side of the picture.

The aftermath of a visiting pigeon with diarrhoea?

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:

I had heard that 60009 was turin the area... but probably best if my thoughts on this matter remain shrouded in mystery.

The aftermath of a visiting pigeon with diarrhoea?

Or perhaps the remains of an exploded pigeon ?

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.
