Frustrating day today weather wise, looking out of the window at home the impression was of an uexpectedly sunny day. However banks of cloud made it very 'iffy' as to whether the sun would coincide with a train. I also had to fit any photography around several appointments and shopping.
In the event not only was 1W00 in sunshine [see last photo] but this test train was also bathed in sun. By the afternoon the rain had arrived!

HST 43191 with 43193 on the rear arrives at a footbridgeless Colwall station on Tuesday 22-1-19
The footbridge has been removed for renovation according to the notice on or around the 14th January and the route which forms a popular access to the Malvern Hills will not reopen until 15th March. The bad news for photographers is that the HST's will be gone before the bridge is brought back into use.
The working is the regular HST diagram 1W00 0821 London Paddington to Hereford Great Western Railway service

Sprinter 150109 2-car unit passes Malvern Wells loop on 4-1-19
The working is the 1V25 1050 Birmingham New Street to Hereford West Midlands Trains service
Local enthusiasts have been expecting that these units would be removed from the Hereford working but they soldier on. They are rarely seen at weekends. In my experience they also rarely work on Mondays or Fridays but this is not a definite.
