Just about finished my 2H, just a lick of paint to tone down the Black Beetle wheels. Sitting here in the bay waiting to depart for Yeovil Town. Gloucester MPV is on a run down to Exeter, while 3MT is on the Exeter-Salisbury service.

Ignore the front bogie from my S15 lying behind the platformhttp://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/public/style_emoticons/default/blush.gif .

 

Both of the units are ones I have always had a liking for. My Grandfather moved to Ropley in the early '60s and 2Hs were a constant feature of the line and as I never saw them elsewhere, they became known as Ropley diesels. I can remember seeing a Gloucester MPV somewhere when I was young. Another unit I would love is a Swindon Inter-City (later class 124).
