1D34 is the 1652 Paddington-Oxford, stopping at Reading only.

Just saw this pass the Slough Railcam and it appeared to be a 7-coach Turbo (2x2-cars and a 3-car)

Is that normal, or should this normally be HST-operated? (it left PAD on time but was 3 late by Twyford suggesting that could be the case).

Currently booked to be a 7-car or 8-car Turbo with rear set usually locked out of use.  Plenty of room on board even so.
