This year's Glasto festival will be the first for the Class 800s & 802s. I guess there will be a lot of 10-car formations through Westbury and Castle Cary to make sure there is sufficient capacity. Also the opportunity will be there for passengers from Honiton, Axminster, etc. to change at Yeovil Junction for Castle Cary thanks to the expanded timetable.
