    Southern Class 455 Withdrawal

    They have to run the Loco round and barriers to propel the first unit in, split the two, and then propel the 2nd unit into the adjacent road. This occurs in the run round loop just outside of SIMS.

    Intercity Fridays Only to/from Euston

    Ah, as thought it's £75 each way. Booked Euston - Stafford on the 9th of September. By the looks of it it's a "grab any seat" style as no reservations are provided - odd as I doubt there will be any walk up fares, it'll all be paid for in advance.

    The worst train today?

    Try Hereford to New Street - of which 3 out of 4 diagrams are now worked by Class 172s in place of Class 170s heading off to pastures new, whilst awaiting the 196s to arrive. For an hour and a half journey you would at least wish for a table of some kind, and a semi - comfortable seat, and using...

    158950 on hire to TfW

    Noticed this morning that GWRs 158950 is working with TfW today, with 150257 and 150240 (TfW units paired with it) . Is this due to the strikes allowing the unit to boost capacity on TfW? Currently working 1F51 from Swansea to Cardiff Central.

    SWR Metro fleet withdrawals

    Picture sent to me by a friend of Newport Docks today I believe, not a pretty sight. Several 456s and what looks like ex LNWR 319 carriages in their final moments, with 2 Southern 455s awaiting their date with destruction.

    WMTrains livery and station branding

    Excellent! Odd how the yellow continues under the windscreen unlike on the /0s. I shall be visiting Tyseley depot later today so I shall see if there are any more undergoing the same treatment. Edit: 172102 currently undergoing transformation. Each unit takes round 4 days to complete so should...

    LNER Class 91/Mk4 service status/withdrawals/2021 refurbishment

    Perhaps a request by Eversholt to strip them to provide parts for the LNER fleet, which I suppose is cheaper than ordering in new spares providing they arent already knackered. I also believe they use a traditional gas axe on them compared to the excavators as its a bit much for them to handle.

    SWR Metro fleet withdrawals

    Watching videos of the road movements would suggest Reids, not Alleleys, having the haulage contract. Photos seem to show 456018, although only coach 64752. Again, it looks as if its been stripped.

    FPLs for crossovers - are they always present, and how are they shown?

    Last time it was used for passenger working was 2016, when Malvern Wells was blockaded for track renewal. Trains ran to Great Malvern on the down line as usual then proceeded wrong road to Newland before crossing over and regaining the up line. Since then, I don't belive there have been any...

    SWR Metro fleet withdrawals

    Indeed, just seen a photo of it sat outside SIMS on a lorry this morning. Were parts removed at Wimbledon or has it been stripped at Long Marston?

    Class 317 withdrawals.

    Routed via Temple Mills loop on 2S36, a very nice touch (described over the PA as a "rail tour style route!"), reason unknown as of yet but the driver confirmed it was a rare occurrence - lucky for the 10 or so of us onboard!
