- Near Ashurst New Forest Station
This afternoon at around 1600 we passed Eastleigh in our car. 70018 was at the head of a long container train in the usual platform for Fareham, and a 158 passed it in the usual Down platform. The DMU then went slowly forward and headed for the Botley line whilst the container train ran forward towards Southampton as expected. I wonder if the 158 was terminating at Eastleigh and reversing next to the Works or is there a scheduled service down to Portsmouth?
