Is it a gold plated gangers trolley with an Ellis  nameplate running from Melksham for when the replacement bus doesn't turn up...

Don't worry, it's just arrived...

Isn't LH just a Bristol RE variant? Long (36ft) and High frame.

No idea. Perhaps it will be a ghost train?  Grin

Not one or more of those ugly owl sculptures that featured earlier this year I hope?

On a more positive note - a fully refurbished Turbo, re-seated four across throughout, fitted with working air-conditioning, correctly set on-board signage and speakers set to the correct level, with the "mark 2" (charcoal and green, not "show every stain" light grey and green) GWR interior trim (surely too much to hope for?).

I can't see  it available to pre-order on Amazon yet, but is it the launch for the new book b y GWR's publicity team, featuring Julian, Dick, George,  Anne, and Timmy the dog of course, on another ginger beer-fuelled adventure on the regions  railways?  If so, I can  hardly wait! "Five get Bustituted Again" has been a long time coming!
