28th July 2015

First Great Western unveiled their latest 'vinyl wrap' on the 28th July when powercar No.43126 was turned out in 'Bristol 2015 - European Green Capital' livery. The powercar features a bright green body side with a white front valence wrap around the front for the cab. While the livery is striking its the use of white on the lead end is as odd choice as it's already been widely proven that 'white' is not an ideal colour to add to the front of a 125mph train. Only time will tell how the white colour copes with being covered in flies, bird strikes and general staining from daily railway grime buildup. No.43126 passes Cogload Junction with No.43088 with the 0Z29 Bristol Temple Meads - Laira.
