That is probably the most easterly a Great Western train has ever been. And they did travel a bit; 18000 in Vienna, King George V in the States and Pendennis Castle in Australia...

I look forward to seeing the first Japan-bound commuter train from Bombardier being paraded through the streets of Derby :P

Last month, a group of Kasado-built GWR liveried units on a barge in Mihara Port, Hiroshima Prefecture, presumably making a stop en route before going on to Kobe to be loaded on a dedicated transport ship bound for the U.K.
