hello, everybody.

I noticed this picture (Here) on a popular website, of 73207 in Large Logo livery at Tonbridge. My question is, were class 73/2s different in any way technically from 73/1s, or were they just renumbered to differentiate the Gatwick Express locos? So is there any need for them to still carry the 73/2 nos., or is it just for convenience?

off the top of my head, one of the main differences was that when ex class 73/1s that were selected for Gat Ex use, passed through works.. they had the vacuum brakes removed.

im sure there were some other differences... but i cant really be bothered rooting through old books and magazines at the moment to check specific details
