  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. One evening we didn't and were woken up by the carriage cleaners in Ore sidings. We later discovered that CWR had been laid on the viaduct between this trip and the previous similar one...
  9. Were they that short of motive power that that was all they could scrounge up for a main line working?
  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).
  12. I'm getting quite a few timeouts recently while navigating between pages in a thread, only the error reported is 522:
  13. So that van driver couldn't read and/or understand the very clear instructions that were on that sign?
  14. We had one idiot trainee programmer who didn't like QWERTY so he rearranged all the keys from A-Z - and then wondered why things didn't work properly... Unfortunately for him, he didn't last long.
  15. Four 2BILs - I thought one of them was a HAL but on zooming in, the curvature of the bodyside isn't right..
  16. Still available: http://www.linkaonline.co.uk/ - see the section at the bottom left of the page to 'Original Linka' Although there is a new website linked (ha ha) to https://www.scalecast.co.uk/#/
  17. 1) 022 was formed from the power cars of 2HAL units 2613/69 (10731/87) 2) 019 was converted from Bulleid-style 2HAP unit 5629 3) The 'adaptor vehicle' looks like an old SR 'BY' van
  18. "Err... driver, we have an issue coupling these two together..."
  19. Are you not supposed to look directly at Medusa, otherwise you'll be turned to stone?
  20. That's how I remember the approaches to LB - Bulleid-style 4EPBs, and BR-style 2EPBs - looks like another train behind the 2EPB on the right...
