Presumably though the 2Kxx & 2Exx trains are those in passenger service while the 2Zxx services are driver training runs.

5Z02 is an empty stock additional service to provide 2Z71 which is an additional service that is already planned and shown in booking engines. The other 2Zxx services are potential additional passenger services that may run as required (I guess), but these are currently not shown in booking engines.

Strange to run an empty train to Okehampton to make up the additional 0830. Maybe if St David's is packed it will run passenger. What are the odds a turbo makes the first trip. There seems to be four down here at the moment Exmouth-Paignton.

It's booked for a Class 150.

08.30 ex Okehampton added to timetable according to GWR (Great Western Railway) Twitter. I suspect that the rest if the 2Zxx are there just in case they are needed.

Shame that this wasn't planned better and the communications tested. Would have been impressive then. What we got really was grim.

A few glitches and Tim Dunn struggled a bit broadcasting live, even with cue cards, but overall not bad for a social media live broadcast.

Agreed, but he carried the broadcast with his charisma, sincere interest and genuine enthusiasm.

Btw, isn't it time to add Okehampton to the list of services in the title 'Shorter Journeys in Devon' along with Barnstaple, Exmouth etc? :-)
