Brand new IEP on test at Asfordby

Beautiful design
Reminds me a lot of the Shinkansen E7 series. But it's the same manufacturer as well, so it is not so surprising.
One question, will they have this white color scheme when they are put in to regiulär traffic or will they be repainted?
@Rasmus96 Not sure if they'll be white - they normally get vinyl wraps at some point - and the same trains will be on the East Coast main line as well so they may well want to differentiate between them
@Rasmus96 Here you can see a render of the future design that will be on GWR class 800 (after FGW to GWR rebranding) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b8/GWR_S..n.jpg
I like the design of this unit! Nice!!
