I think that is it. Apologies if i have forgotten something.

So today is the big day. The day the long distance HST goes out of service for GWR. Today you drive 43002 and 43198 from Plymouth to London Paddington working as 1A76. this will come in three parts. In this part, You will drive as far as Exeter St Davids. Your departure time is 06:57.

There are a couple of signals that play up. you have to tab the first two when leaving Plymouth, Again at Hemerdon. You will also get the wrong signal on the approach to totnes. You are due through the platform as on this day, There actually was a points failure and all trains were routed through platform 2 at Totnes.

Please enjoy a final day on Hst. Take care and Stay safe
