On Friday, I caught the the 11:08 from Forest Hill, a 455, to Clapham Junction. Then I caught the 11:35 Silverlink service to Willesden. After a long wait, a 266 came. When we got to North Acton, I saw that something was given the road towards Old Oak. So I got off to see what it was. It turned out to be a Chiltern 165. Luckily, another (empty) 266 was following, so I took it to Acton Mainline...

5 minutes after arrival, at 12:27, 47714 appeared, with an Mk3 and 47818 in tow. I was there until 3 o clock. In the meantime, a Yeoman 59 entered Acton Yard, followed by a Hanson one. Not long after, 47818 came thrashing through the station, with 2 sleeper coaches, the Mk3 and 47714 in tow. Then, the Flying Banana HST sped through, eastbound. 6E38 had a shed on.

After that, 47703 appeared from Acton Wells, dragging 47712 with support from a white smoked 47355. When 47703 was approaching the station, it did its thing with the thin black stream of clag, the came in on the wrong platform! But, it reversed, with 355 and it's white clag heading for Old Oak.

So I hung round for the Banana to come back, went Stratford, for the DRS Tractors, which were blocked by a barrage of units :( A good day to end my Easter Holidays.
