Not quite as luxurious but you can still find the odd one or two 158 diagrams on the Cardiff-Portsmouth line. They?re not done on the line yet.

Apart from weekends when a couple of 158s have been operating, a couple of 158s have come back since the new Timetable  to release Turbos for the Devon Metro
