After an 11 Mins wait at West Brompton for the next bloody D-stock to come
(Sorry Memorex and Tom (class313), I turned up at Liverpool St platform 10 at 13:23:29)
On the District line to Bank, England Supporters boarded the train at Embankment and started jumping, swearing, hitting the ceiling, Singing Songs very loudly like "We are the Champions" and "Can you clap your hands"
Also I had my first ride on a Refurbished SWT 455 to Vauxhall (Teddington)
"calling at Vauxhall, Queenstown Road,Clapham Junction,Wandsworth Town,Putney, Barnes Bridge, North Sheen, Richmond, St.Margarets, Twickenham," and etc...
I went on SET 'networker' Service to Waterloo , CSE 465013
I also saw Eurostar DVC (Da Vinci Code) with another photographer
I also went on the Hellfire A-stock, (and I sat at the Back of the Train :))

Here are the Photos from this Glorious and Fantastic Sunny Day!
319215 at London Bridge, Notice that the Vinyl had been ripped off to reveal the Connex Yellow Livery (Not me!)

South West Trains Turbostar Class 170308 approaches Vauxhall with a Salisbury Local Service

Two Trains of SWT pass each other, Refurbished 455 and that Common Unit Class 450

Eurostar Class 3732xx on the final approaches to Waterloo on 9O31 ex 13:04 from Paris

Yet there are still many Unrefurbished Class 455s running on the Suburban Network

Here's another Common Unit Class 444029 heads towards the curve for the final approach to Waterloo

SWT 442412 approaches Vauxhall with a Weymouth Service 15:05

The Eurostar I was waiting for.............. Da Vinci Code

Mona Lisa featured in the Vinyl, and the Logo

And the Rear of the Train, off to Paris on 15:11 9O36 calling at Calais Frethun and Paris Gare du Nord


Phew! I'm so tired! :)
What a day!

Feel free to Comment
Once again, sorry tom (class 313) *blame Stupid Distress line!

Standing behind a solar panel probably isn't the best place to take photos ;) Also, why upload photos where the rear of the train is not quite in the picture and looking like it is climbing a very steep gradient such as your Class 442 or trains hidden behind signals like your Class 444? Perhaps you could try cropping them to give better/enlarged views, making the train the focal point.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the reason Julian went to Vauxhall was to photo the Eurostar 'DVC'. Now looking at where the sun is, if he had chosen the more favourable shot of the middle platforms, he would've got a worse shot of it than what he did on that platform, even if there is railway clutter in the way. The sun is on the front of the train which is better than seeing the side in dark. Vauxhall is the only place you get Eurostars between Waterloo & the station which the name fails me (the first one up and over the flyover)

That's the one! Although I think that would've been a worse shot cos the sun would've been behind the train and right infront of the camera.

Wandsworth Road ;)

That's a brill station for photting :)
I couldn't risk it because the other photographer said it was allox on 14:41 9I40 Bruxelles/Brussels

I didn't want to go to Wandsworth road, as I saw someone posted that someone's camera got stolen

Don't know what's wrong being hidden (a small amount) by a signal, a signal is a part of the railway, isn't it.
Yes, I think so too. How about an overhead pole in front of the train? Doesn't matter. It's a part of the railway too, isn't it :s

Where 58's still operate in commercial service...
Yeah.... I even made "great schots" there ;)


TBH... this is one of my wordt shots ever made.

Next time you migt try again in the mid afeternoon, and turn up wit something like this. This was with a lot of zoom, so if you stay around 30mm you might get the complete train on it. And I made this photo around 18:40 pm... so not really perfect light conditions.. (I was a bit to late)



BUT.... once again i recommand Wandsworth Raod
