The "Beast from the East" has provided another dump of snow through which an unidentified twin 5-car GWR Class 800 electro-diesel set is forging across Hungerford Common on 18th March 2018. This a diverted Swansea to Paddington service running on the section of the Berks & Hants route not scheduled for electrification. Note the powder snow whipped up by the air turbulence in the gap at the join of the two units - let's hope they have been tested for the "wrong type of snow"!
