Only asked because i was caught out by a 159 speeding through Brockenhurst Monday and couldn't get a decent photo as by the time i saw it it was gone,sure it had Fort William on the front. :shock:

Try telling that to all the blokes at a certain historical railway works on the South Western that could of done all these overhauls, especially as it's central to all the depots

The situation at Eastleigh was disgusting TBH and an awful shame. Out of interest, did most of the chaps from the Works get made redundant slash ( , or did they get re-loacted/found other jods etc? :?:

Luckily NR at Eastleigh were dramatically increasing their work force {something like 150% extra} so alot of the guys have been made redundant on the Friday and joined NR on the Monday.
It's good because we are finally getting some engineers in rather than muppets out of Eastleigh railway club and highly strung pricks from Vosper Thornycroft who think NR should be falling over themselves to put them on COSS courses etc etc
We just have to educate the works boys about the real railway though :lol: ;)
