Full description from the producer:
This cab ride was filmed from the cab of EWS Class 37 264 with reporting number OZ63.
The service from the yard at Wembley was bound for Bristol where we terminate at the Barton Hill Depot. Once out of the EWS yard at Wembley, we pass under the West Coast Main Line and up to Acton Main Line where we join the GWR main line. We take the down slow line as far as Reading and then progress to the Berks & Hants route through Newbury and on to Westbury. After reversing at Westbury, the service passing through Bradford-on-Avon and Bath and into the East Carriage Sidings to allow an HST to go through. A move into Bristol Temple Meads follows where we see the Pullman carriages on a charter. We then move onto the Barton Hill Depot where our training service ends.
