  1. For those interested, these are the ones concerned:
  2. I thought this had something to do with the midget bench seat... Originally 6077, if you like your SR EMUs in old money...
  3. The only thing 'modern image' for 1975 in this photo is the staff uniform jacket...
  4. Probably because most of the VRF cameras point at a crossing or two? Or, in the case of Chehalis, WA, three...
  5. Looks like that unit is ready for its last journey - open doors on the first vehicle, and the last one is the wrong way round for normal service...
  6. A pair of 4SUBs arriving on a peak hour at Waterloo could easily disgorge upwards of a thousand...
  7. Despite many notifications to them (both via Email and face-to-face) they still don't acknowledge that their version of BR(S) Green as applied to their BR-period Maunsells is actually more like SR Malachite...
  8. One evening four of us bagged the second class compartment in a 4CIG on a late Victoria-Brighton/Ore service which split at Haywards Heath. The usual thing was to be woken up by the 60' track on the Ouse Valley viaduct ready to fall out of the train at the Heath and make our way home.

  10. A close call and possible soiled underpants at 19:14 in this Grab Bag...
  11. Looks like another one, or a 6PAN at the other end of the platform. This would be a Brighton or Worthing working, as the Hastings ones would usually be formed 6PUL-6PAN; the PUL left at the Eastbourne reversal and the PAN worked to Hastings (Ore).
