So I'm on one of the shiny new GWR electro-diesel Class 800 Super Express trains. The carriage is very bright and airy, the seats firmer than usual but once again the fucking wankers have designed a train where the windows don't line up with the seats. I've got half a window, but there's several seats with no window view at all. The armrests are pencil thin and the dull, two tone greys of the seats make them look dirty already. There's a bit more leg room, probably on account of the thin, extra-firm seats. There's no buffet either - because the train is now split into two separate units, you can't have one buffet serving the train, so you have to wait for a trolley (if there is one). That's fucking rubbish. I want a coffee now but have no idea where the trolley is and if the train gets as overcrowded as some do, there's no way it'll be able to get past the bags/people. I liked being able to walk the length of the old trains, especially if the train was packed and you were looking for a seat. The booked/not booked seat indicators are an improvement though as are the individual plugs per seat. On electric current the train is quieter too although I've heard complaints about noise on diesel power. The wi-fi is as slow/patchy/completely useless as ever, of course. Despite being sat at Reading Station, there's no signal at all. My verdict so far? A bit meh. It's an overall slight improvement but the lack of a buffet is a huge step backwards and there's no excuse for misaligned windows.
