Taking a brief break from our usual fare this clip shows two of what have been described as "Great Britain's best-ever trains" in the form of the InterCity 125 or HST sets which are currently being withdrawn from main line service on the old Western Region, by Great Western Railway. After over 40+ years of such service these British-built trains are being replaced by Japanese ones in the form of the classes 800/802 Intercity Express Trains or IETs. By way of a change in location, these trains are shown on the old LSWR West of England main line at Chard (where the "heritage" Swallow-liveried HST power car is seen and Axminster (a set with both of FGW's current liveries displayed), both on the dya Storm Freya hit the country. One of the Japanese usurpers is then seen in the darkness at Yeovil Pen Mill which is at least old GWR territory. Diversions were in place for a few weeks due to the closure of Whiteball Tunnel for reburbishment.
