Apologies for the poor quality pictures. My best excuse was that it was dull with lots of spray in the air with the light coming from the worst direction. Having said that it was nice to see GWR’s latest retro display of times past with the Inter City swallow livery as applied in the late 1980’s to  43185 power car and named “Great Western” It is seen here on Dawlish sea wall approaching the Rockstone bridge on a Plymouth-Paddington service. The Bristol Green 2015 liveried HST 43148 was on the rear end of the set.
