It sounds like you've had a very similar last couple of years to us! The Northern ones took a lot of effort to clear. To be honest the trip couldn't have gone better, we planned to go to the South Coast on the last day but had it gone wrong and we still needed a pacer somewhere, we wouldn't have made it. It made a nice change and it shows the versatility of the ticket. HST's in the south west one day, third rail EMUs the next! We didn't spend long at Eastleigh to be fair, too busy chasing units. There were a number of guys on the platforms with cameras so there must have been a decent amount of stuff due through. I suppose in this day and age seeing two moving freights in less than an hour is considered busy! If you can arrange the time off with my employer, I will happily oblige! Glad you enjoyed them. Never particularly liked Peterborough as it's not very photogenic but it is often busy to be fair. Need to finish reading your London trip, enjoyed day 1. Welcome back!
