Today I went to the green bridge north of Kensington Olympia to see the 456 Drag to Wolverton which was being hauled by 47841 (the same loco i saw back in January when it was taking 442401 to Ilford),
And then I went to Lower Marsh Road outside Waterloo to see the 1992TS being lifted in, i'm lucky i had the chance to see the Driving Motor Car being placed in :), and then I had a long chat with some Metronet guy and some Old Bloke about the W&C

47841 hauls 456012 to Wolverton after leaving Olympia

1992TS DM 65506 being prepared to be lifted

1992TS DM65506 is raised slowly to prevent the train from hitting the lampposts

The whole train was in mid-air, the W on the Paper marks which part of the train should be placed Waterloo direction or Bank Direction

Is it a bird, Is it a Plane, No! it's not that Pendolino Junk, it's a 1992TS! :)

The Crane carefully puts the carriage past the Signpost,

The Carriage is successfully lifted in, taken from Waterloo station (close to p1)


Feel free to comment
[EDIT]
For more information look in here
'This is a Waterloo and City Line train to Ongar'

12/13 August 2006- some trains will be lifted in (i think 2 locos will be taken out)
17/18 August 2006- the battery locos will be taken out

Great pics mate, I like the look of the new LT1992s - better than the blue ones! :)
Thanks Rich,
i hope the vandals won't reach the Waterloo and City Line and remove the armrests!
