GWR "Castle"HSTs test running starting. - Posted: March 21, 2018 - 1:43 PM Quote and reply
The short formed HSTs (2 + 4) had their first test run last Monday on a Plymouth-Exeter-Truro-Plymouth "circuit", which will be repeated daily this week. One minute station stops were being attempted in preparation for their use on local services by December.
