Nice pics there Jordy, although there aren't many - I guess you were too busy bashing!? :D

Works now. Is the Thumper in the old tadpole formation?

No, it's a "maggot" created in the 90s when they put a CEP trailer in the middle of several 205s/207s for the Ashford-Brighton service.

It is still complete with old Southern maps, and Southern branding inside! :D

Thats hardly surprising, I travelled in a DMU trailer (in use as hauled stock) in the 90s on the Paignton & Dartmouth Railway - it still had West Midlands PTE route maps in it, and it had been withdrawn from Tyseley about 10 years earlier!

Our 101 down the East Kent Railway still has "Regional Railways" notices in it, despite being with FNW post-RR :D

Following a trend, our 101 still has a nice Regional Railways couchette for the guard to lay down on after giving the two buzzes. The SWT CIG has a bunch of stuff in it, including a SWT WTT for 2004 minus cover, two brand new Drivers Fault Reporting Books, all the notices, and full SWT branding!

Looks charming behind a Class 33 in faded BR Blue with graffiti scraped off it.

Most of the ex DMU trailers at the P&DSR are NSE, saw one the other week going into Churston shed for repaint :p

Not forgetting the SWT 'Phone a Friend' stickers for Fratton Park in the Cab. ;)

Oh and Porterbrook plates above the doors.

Those stickers are in all the current SWT trains now too.
