Hi all today I went to King's Cross, to collect a FCC Timetable, So I can put the 317 allocations on them, the ex BedPan is still going strong! :toothy1:
one on the 17:06 "Foxton" and 17:36 "Peterborough"
I saw a Stand By Unit as well, and also the "Additional Football Special"
Good to see a lot of Ex BedPan Units being used on Great Northern Electrics!
WCRC "Intercity Swallow" 47826 "Springburn" stables at King's Cross Loco Sidings for the Day

A Pioneer leaves King's Cross as it follows a 317, both trains were in the Fast Line heading North!

This 317 was the standby Unit for the Day

The Departure Board also showing the "Additional Football Special", note that the two Peterborough Services depart within 3mins of each other!


What a Great Day! :glasses2: I'm looking forwards for October 7th! :)

It was for Arsenal Match i suspect, It was formed of 8x 365
No wonder they show "Watton-at-Stone via Hertford" so people can take the Semi-Fast Trains to Stevenage!

As for the Foxton train, no wonder so many people pack into the Cambridge Express (formerly Cambridge Cruiser) train :|
