For some reason I never really took many cl50 photos :0(

Anyway I do have this one at Exeter in May 1991, hopefully not too new for the thread!

Anyway back to the SR and the 1980's

I did put this on the old thread but thought it worth re-posting.....

Great pictures, I do like the 33's and 73's, reminds of the old days of push and pull down here in sunny Dorset. Hopefully I will get a scanner soon and add to this wonderful collection. "Keep em coming"

 

Cheers

Scott

 

PS, the picture with the 45, is that Eastleigh??

Hi Scott,

Sorry I didn't your post until now. Yes the Peak is at Eastleigh. They were quite common on the Severn Tunnel to Eastleigh Speedlink and return, though finished in 1985.

Here are a couple more, not sure if I posted all these on the old thread, I have sort of lost track of what I have posted.

45041 heads towards Southampton on the Severn Tunnel- Eastleigh. 33106 heads for Sway and 33110 at Brockenhurst.

 

Cheers Peter,

Cough !!, splutter !!, Ahem !!

Ahh, that's better.

Now that the dust's settled, it's good to see this super thread again. Thanks fellas. post-7009-12567424174229_thumb.jpgpost-7009-1256742566502_thumb.jpg

'The Royal Wessex' railtour arrives at Bournemouth. I can't be specific about the time and date, but I think it was in connection with one of the open days at Branksome depot, either the one in '88, (compare the weather in these pics. against the pics. on the old thread, old forum), or the 15/5/1998 open day shown below,

 

post-7009-1256747705874_thumb.jpg

Cl.159, No.159 017 provides the shuttle between B'm'th Station and the depot.

There has been an ongoing decision to be made as to whether these units will replace the EMU 3-CIG, Slamdoor stock on the Lymington branch. I've heard that Lymington Pier station is shortly to be up graded, SWT are currently short of Desiro units and, if 159s are used, it will mean training for the BOMO crews.

If it's any consolation to you SRMan, the most comfortable ride I'd ever experienced was on a Bulleid 4-SUB between Waterloo East and Plumstead. The commuters, these days, don't know what they're missing.

The 4-REPs + 4-TCs used to rattle yer bits (especially the ladies), between Winchester and Battledown, and the 442s' cramped seating prevented any bits of you from moving........ I rest my case.
