You may or may not be aware, that as of Sunday 20 September the First Great Western brand ceased to exist, and was replaced with a new Great Western Railway (GWR) identity.
So what's the reaction been like? From what I've read, general consensus on the design work has been positive - simple, stylish and a definite step towards a time when the whole rail service had a greater reputation.
However, the mood from everyday passengers has been slightly different. And to be fair, you can see why.
In fact, the new livery will take three years to be introduced across every train on the whole Great Western network.
For now, I'm sure most customers would settle for a great present wrapped in boring brown paper, rather than the other way round. I guess the only way to check if the rebrand has been a success is to come back in four years and ask the passengers if the promises were delivered.
