I have to agree, well I would as I'm incredibly biased - as I secured the contract to design that relivery project from Great Western Trains in its original, unadulterated form.  One of the most exciting, challenging and satisfying periods of my so-called career.  Seeing these photos brought it all flooding back, huge thanks to the OP for his great topic!

 

GWT was a Management buy-out, the first InterCity operator to rebrand, and the only one, albeit briefly as it turned out, to actually use the phrase InterCity as part of its brand.  I've still a huge soft spot for the Road-Runner livery 23 years later, and somewhere I've got the original livery drawings, the moquette and bulkhead decorative samples and possibly a First Class curtain from the St Phillips marsh mock-up event ....

Had lots of old school class that . I think keeping the intercity was a good move - instantly recognisable

Nice one! I would like to see a short video of the depot in action.


I'm sure that can be arranged! Not much movement can happen mind, not alot of room for such a thing
