No GWR and there was several right up to the 2100hrs. If they can keep running, why can't cross country. Some of the trains are un-marked, so they may have been the cross country one's.

Because the Cross Country trains, the original Voyagers, break down when waves crash on the top of them! This doesn’t happen with the GWR trains or when CC run HST trains, which sadly isn’t very often!
