Any more 315s due to make their last journey soon? So far we’ve only had one scrap move this year (which is a good thing for most folk!)

836 written off and 817 out of miles, so both going for scrap in the next days.
Wondering if these will be the first PEPs since December to go to Sims Metals Newport Docks for disposal? The HST Mk3 scrap moves have finished for now though there is a Pacer currently en-route to the South Wales site for scrapping.

They are being stripped first. Replacement pair should come across when off-lease from MTR at end of month.
Ah right. Shouldn’t be too long then until the two units make their last journey. Gonna take a guess that they’ll probably heads to Sims Metals Newport Docks for disposal

Looks like the nameplates on 315817 were removed prior to today’s scrap move. The doomed units have now reached Newport Docks so that’s another two officially culled!

Believe this is 315806/827 which are out of miles (unless its a plan B for a 360 move)
Would be surprised if it was a pair of 315s as I would have thought that they would’ve went straight to the scrapyard from Ilford. Guess we will have to wait and see!

Also it’s worth pointing out that 315812 appears to be the only modified set still in service now that 806 is withdrawn (809 is currently stored and 804 went for scrap last December)
