The last GWR slam door class 257 is due to operate on the 31/12/19. It's first train is the 0526 Bristol TM to Penzance. I don't know its full diagram at the moment.

by the green mile
When I retired in 2012 this was a single class 153 with minimal leg room, a single toilet and heating if you were lucky. I can't believe anyone would tolerate the complete journey unless out of sheer necessity but it did happen occasionally. I remember a guy who told me he was going for a job interview in Plymouth. Four air conditioned coaches definitely progress!
