I went our for a blast on 006 last night, excellent. About 15 cranks on the inbound from Rug, four or five on the return. Glad to say timekeeping was excellent and there was no sign of any dubious antics.
Lets hope it lasts!

Nice shots there, noticed the caption for the second one is "87006 on arrival at Birmingham Euston ready for its return south to the capital" :lol:

End game for 006 - transformers gone.

G21/B05 a Pendo until 87007 is available for traffic.
IMHO thats IF 007 is ever made available... Has to complete c1000 miles on test first. Hopefully some developments soon but i fear that is the end...

:(

Above phot now of 006's last run...

87002 Going strong this week....More passengers than usual aswell ;)
Was a little late in both directions today due to Central's service falling down.... The normal safe +27 at Rugby off the unit from New St was looking a bit like a minus so boarded my first seven at Cov since 01/06/05...and that was 87002 aswell!

A selection of phots from the last week or so.... http://www.redcow.fotopic.net/c933671.html

and why is that?

Rumourings the diagram may be ending sooner rather than later.... Nothing comfirmed mind (always the way isn't it) but the Pendo mod program is all but finished, or so I am led to believe. May be supported by the fact that the coach lost a few weeks back hasn't returned?

I did tell you when I had those £7 tickets, that it was a case of take your chance while you can!

You just never know with these things how long they're going to last.

Make the most of everything while you can

Looks like Friday 24th November will be the last run. So only two weeks left.

87 related, 87012/019 have been deregistered from the system (RSL). Road movement only for those two then.

The G21/B05 end date is again uncertain according to the men up front on G21....
