With all this talk of 319004 being scrapped, it reminds me of when DVT 82119 - the first to carry ONE Anglia livery, was scrapped in 2005 to demonstrate that they weren't going to be stored forever..

I have 317364 and 317379 as the other candidates. Come May however the 3 x 319/0's are tentatively down to leave......subject to the arrival of the remaining 6 x 350/4's

is the original list on the first page still updated to date?
I've just updated it based on information here and observations. If anyone else can provide any new information that would be great. I can't imagine there are too many 319's left at Long Marston now.
Just seen this photo of 319425, the 319 used on the Thameslink farewell tour in GWR livery in Crewe

319003&319006 have been delivered to Canton as 769s according to the 769 for TfW thread. 319007 has been seen at Doncaster as 769007
Also, 319428 was pictured in gwr green at Wolverton on the gwr 769 thread with 430. That same thread says that all 319s have now left Reading

Just noticed this (apologies if it's in another thread too):


No info as to which unit - I assume it was just borrowed for the day and GBRf haven't (yet) got any committed to them?

Probably, LNWR haven't finished with them yet, they probably just aren't needed with the reduced Covid 19 timetable.

Successful trial? BR converted and operated units for freight work for years, both diesel and electric. Ironically, the 325s are convertible into passenger stock if necessary

319373 and 319009 currently on route to Eastleigh from Long Marston hauled by 37800 on 5Q86

Indeed they are, and its good to see them go through their old patch too, running on the Southern/Thameslink network between Clapham Junction and Wimbledon.

Certainly a rather odd and unusual routing to get them down to Eastleigh though, I'd have expected them to do up to Evesham or Worcester, change ends, then down the Cotswold to Oxford / Reading / Basingstoke / Eastleigh.


What’s rog?

There's a nice photo of the move passing Worting Junction today.

I see! Do they have any existing mail trains right now?
