Thanks, (and sorry for the late reply!). I don't remember seeing many but then again until recently there wasn't a lot for us to add to the conversation as obviously this was a fairly bottom of the pile conversation before the Dawlish incident.
Hi Paul. Many thanks for you welcome, much appreciated. Loved the 304's, takes me back to my younger days, along with the occasional 303 operating the route. Probably one of the first classes I went on in to Lime Street.
