Plots and analysis of a first week Down run recorded by Sean Emmett on 2nd November have been posted in the IET section of the website.

Impressive run-time of 23 minutes start-to-stop sets new standards despite the complication of having to switch to diesel mode past Steventon bridge and normal fairly gentle braking on the approach to Swindon.

Hope was for an eastbound run to match this week, but thwarted when Up electric running was suspended after just a few hours on Sunday 4th November.

Today's 13.29 SWA PAD was electric from Swindon to Causeway LC, and again after Moreton.
