Menial Work

Great Western's HSTs didn't only cover long distance expresses but had to perform some menial duties as well. 43.149 and 43.183 passed Ruscombe, east of Twyford, with 1P95, the 09:15 from Reading to Paddington, on 20 April 2016. At least the train didn't have to suffer the shame of picking up at smaller stations, stopping only at Maidenhead before being permitted to cross to the fast line for the rest of its journey.
