800031 Steventon 16 February 2018

Five to go! 800031 makes its maiden run along the Great Western Mainline on 16 February 2018 with the 5X30 14:17 North Pole IEP Depot to Swindon test run. The previous day it had worked down from the North east as the 5X80 08:56 Doncaster Carr to North Pole IEP. The five car Class 800/0s for GWR are numbered 800001 to 800036, so only five more of these have yet to arrive, plus of course the nine car Class 800/3s, and the Class 802s.
