    Winners so far:

    New EMU - 350/2
    BR EMU - SWT 455

    Hitachi apparently very annoyed as 395s were roundly beaten.

    Anyone know of other results?

    Apparently nothing for the 357s but I understand SWT gets something for the 458s.

    Very pleased with the team at Wimbledon behind the SWT 455, I've only had one failure in the last seven months!

    I heard that they picked up the Silver Spanner (most improved) but am yet to see it in writing. They certainly were doing very well last time I checked.

    Correct, Roger Ford has already tweeted that. 171s have also done well.

    The only rarely awarded spanner for 'slowest wi-fi installation'? :D

    Maybe it should be a golden soldering iron...
