Hi there. Just wondering if anyone knows what 317512 is doing today, please. Is it stabled somewhere, or working, and if so, which services. Thanks for your help.
Stabled at Cambridge. It hasn't run for weeks.
Thanks so much Bikeman. I saw a 317 or two tucked in the carriage sidings adjacent to / north of the station as I was arriving into into CBG from the north yesterday, but had no way of getting their numbers because 700048 was packed adjacent to them obscuring sight of them from the platform. So I took a walk today along Clifton Road, and there was 317512, coupled to 317343. Very grateful for your help - saved me a fruitless trip to Liverpool St / Bethnal Green in the hope of seeing it in the rush hour.

It's interesting that 663/669 will be among the last to go, seeing as they were withdrawn considerably earlier than the rest of the subclass.

Not immensely relevant to 317s but very relevant to Newport: do no scrap moves take place on weekends?

5Q76 0933 Ely to Sims Newport Docks - 26 April

Realtime Trains - 506E 0933 Ely Mlf Papworth Sidings to Newport Docks (Simsgroup)

37884 with a single 317649, which made its one and only visit to Reading in style over the flyover… slightly late coming down from Acton (between the CrossRail terminator and the Didcot slow) and to avoid a reversing XC on the down relief it crossed at Kennet Bridge, and powered through Reading's platform 9 (down main) squeezed between the Swansea and the Worcester. A change from creeping through platform 12 (or 13).

Is there any other 317 classes there by any chance?.

If you mean Ely Papworth, there's some ex-LO 317/8s around the front, visible from passing trains. And I believe 317345, 509 and 722 are still in there somewhere?
