For almost 40-years the HST has been the prime mover of passengers on express services in many parts of Britain and it continues to be considered by many to be the saviour of the former BR passenger network. First Great Western utilises 58 HST sets and apart from ongoing modernisation all are virtually identical, the only downside to this is that the few named workings the company operates look identical to the un-named ones, so naming May be considered a futile exercise. One such named working is pictured here on 30th August 2014, 'The Torbay Express' running alongside the River Teign with its next stop at Newton Abbot about 10-minutes hence, the service is the 10.35 Paddington to Paignton.
