The HEX also has to cater for those whose digestive systems are catching up with them after a long flight.

They’re nearly all gone to scrap now.  At least one carriage of 332001 is apparently being used as a “gate guard” at Siemens new Goole factory, but 10 units have now gone to Sims Newport, one to Sims Peterborough, and I reckon only 2 remain, probably to go next week.

May be worth a topic split ... 332s (Heathrow Express) for scrap, 360 (Heathrow connect) - new life for freight?
From Rail Advent

Quote
Rail Operations UK (United Kingdom) Limited (ROUK) have agreed with Heathrow Airport Limited to purchase five Class 360/2, along with spares.

ROUK see these Class 360/2 play a role in changing rail freight logistics across the UK in the years to come.

Heathrow Express, owned by Heathrow Airport Limited, operated these units on the Heathrow Airport to London Paddington “Heathrow Connect” service.

I wonder if they will be converted to be similar to the class 325 used for Royal Mail? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_325

Some Class 319s are being converted to freight & parcels use for Orion High Speed Logistics:
