Today I went to Hertford North and Stevenage.

The day started off with a bus bash :| To Hertford. This was the route 724 "Green Line" From Heathrow to Harlow. Anyway, I arrive at Hertford North station and buy my ticket to Stevenage (£2.50), I get to the platform and I see a double FCC livery 313 combo on platform 3. The combo leave for Moorgate whilst I wait for mine, whilst waiting 313x2 in ex WAGN purple livery come out of the sidings onto platform one. The first 313 was active but the rear didnt have its pantograph up, the train then went down the line towards London still with only one 313 working. Now my 313 trundels into platform 2, one white and the other purple.

Now at Stevenage I go onto platform 2 to take some videos of northbound trains, seeing a 317, 365s, a 91 and a HST there also a 222... Then I move up the platform to get some shots of southbound trains. I see a 317s, 365s, a 91, and another HST. It finally stopped raining for a bit and the sun popped out for 30 mins or so, because of this I had to move to platform 3 to get the sun out of my eyes! Whilst there I got shots of 365s, a 91 and 313s...

Then It was time to go! so I headed back to platform 1/2. Whilst sitting in the WARM waiting room a HST screams past :| and then 2 91s plus the many 365s. Now it was time for my 313 back to Hertford then the 724 back Home.

A great day methinks!

Thanks for reading.

Being the lowest class in the EMU book these days do 313s now count as heritage/classic traction???

1976/77 vintage.....
Gawd almighty. They are older than me. One of the few classes of trains that are older than me :shock: :sad:

The first ones are soon for the chop when the new 376s arrive for TFL so they can almost count as heritage.

The 313s and the bubble cars are the only active passenger units that pre date me now
