43125 Tredington 6 June 2018

Off to pastures new, after 39 years on the former Western Region. 43125 passes Tredington on 6 June 2018 with the 5Z46 17:46 Bristol St Philips Marsh to Chaddesden Sidings ECS, with classmate 43128 bringing up the rear. With increasing numbers of Class 800 bi-mode units entering service, the HST fleet is gradually being redeployed, and in this case heading for a new life in Scotland. Note that all branding has been removed from the power car, although a ghost image of the 'First Great Western' lettering can still just be seen. Initially this was booked to be the 5Z46 17:46 Bristol St Philips Marsh to Ely Papworth Sidings, but the schedule got changed shortly before departure, only to revert back to the Ely destination when it was on the move, and then back to Chaddesden again shortly afterwards! In the event it worked from Chaddesden to Ely the following day.
