Due to the interest generated by the introduction of the IET, we are proposing to post some of the initial logs of these trains, and performance-related data to this web-site. If you have a log of the IETs following their introduction, and not previously submitted, please send them and we will post them on this web-site.

Please send your log to rpseditor@aol.com

Change of itinerary yesterday. Took a 150 to Cardiff to pick up 15.29 ex SWA as far as RDG, but heavily delayed at Patchway so had to bale at NWP.

NWP to BPW 23m 24s, checked after Patchway. 72-73 out of Severn Tnl, 79 max after Pilning.

Dep BPW 3 late. To SWI in 24m 14s. 95 out of Sodbury Tnl and fleeting 125 max before Little Somerford, 90 max after W B Jn slack.

SWI to RDG 27m 02s. 122 at Steventon checked down to 60. Recovered to 80 thro DID and 114 max Pangbourne.

Have sent draft IET article to Editor.

Should have added this was formed by 800 009 + 800 011 with one power car out on 009.

I gather 009 is out on its own today. Interesting if anyone gets to time it.
