 Cleared to enter revenue earning passenger service on October 11, 2017, the five-car Class 800/0 has a seating capacity of forty five in First Class, with 270 in Standard Class and is made up from a standard driving car, two standard motor carriages, a composite motor carriage and a First Class driving car. Running as both five-car and nine-car sets, trains can be extended up to a maximum of twelve cars, with a maximum total multiple length of 312 metres, although it is expected that five, nine and ten car sets will be the usual diagrams.


In a naming ceremony at Paddington Station on January 10, 2018, the daughter of author Michael Bond named the driving cars of Class 800/0 five-car set no. 800 010 after her father and his creation, Paddington Bear. Micheal Bond’s first Paddington Bear book was released on October 13, 1956 and has proved to be an iconic and loveable literary character over the subsequent sixty years, as well as sharing a name with the GWR’s London terminus. In addition to the names carried on the two power cars, the original illustrator of the Paddington book, Peggy Fortnum, has provided images of Paddington that adorn not just the power cars, but the doors of the coaches as well, making set 800 010 truly unique in the GWR IET fleet.
