(1) Route confirmation required. Train was photographed at Paddington.
(2) A published photo in the September 2013 edition of 'British Railways Illustrated' gave the stock as W33W+W1096W+W38W however John Debens has re-confirmed the vehicle identities are clearly written as W35W+W1096W+W36W on the rear of the photo in his collection, suggesting the magazine was in error.

W36W leads the formation at Paddington platform 5 at the start of the day
