So after the huge success of the FoSS, I'm back out so soon, I had a few things rattling round for a day out, a day in Leeds and Manchester, trying to skittle out those pesky NH 142s, my last 144, some of NH's 150s and my last 2 333s, certainly seemed like a worthwhile journey, however, whilst travelling to and from the smoke on the last trip, it really dawned on me, as they whizzed to the left and right of me, that I really need to go down here and start making inroads on the London suburb EMUs, namely Great Northern and Thameslink, of which I have plenty blank spaces to fill in the NREA. In fact inroads of any shape in our Countries Capital would benefit the aforementioned NREA. Also was a bite the bullet moment, get the voyager to Sheffield and take in Derby and Nottingham too. A trip eeking out my few EMT 156 and 158s, HST stock, plus NET requirements and a trip to Toton bank side for that thorn in my side, which is stood in the 60s Grave yard, thanks to kite for reminding me, not that I'd ever forgotten. The last option was Scotland, postye seeing 156457, my last ScotRail 156 needed for sight, had also stirred the desire for another roundabout, plus there's still more than 156457 to hunt down up there, a mixture of 158s, 170s and various other jockrail EMUs to chase, plus a certain turn to cure a bit of cat scratch fever. Unfortunately I'd left it a little bit too late or so I thought to book some decent priced advances.

I was left to the gods of cheap advances, the trip South was rendered ridiculous, I couldn't stomach the thought of a voyager to Derby, however much I wanted 60093 underlined. I also looked at Leeds and Manchester and it was relatively decent price wise, especially when adding a day ranger but on looking at getting up to Glasgow, I found a couple of first class advances that looked more than favourable and seeing how cheap a roundabout ticket is, my mind was made up and roughly for the same price, as a dash between Leeds and Manchester, plus ranger. Just had to hope my day off for Monday went to plan, fortunately it did and hey presto, by Thursday evening via the GWR app, it was all booked.

Couple of questions, picking up tickets, says on my confirmation the return, I've mistakenly put to pick up at Edinburgh, would I still be able to get them from the TVM in Newcastle? I obviously have the codes for them, also anyone the wiser which 2 cats are on the fife circle, twas dud 68007 and AR Winner 68022, last I heard? Any help on these would be greatly appreciated. You folk always come up trumps, so I'm guessing someone will know.

All that's left to be said, if anyones remotely interested the hashtag will go live about 0600 hrs and will be #LSGsMagicRoundabout.

You should be able to pick up your tickets from any ToD enabled TVM, so you should be fine picking up at Newcastle

I hope you have a good day in Scotland :)

I've started trying to pick my tickets up in advance from Andover station rather than risk an "out of service" error at Grateley when it runs out of ticket stock (or gets visited by the local youths thinking it would be fun to break it)

Good luck with that, it's been far to long since I did Scotland.
I can't wait to read about it.

Anyway, time for bed (said Zebedee) ;)

yeah, I'm off to get them tomorrow evening. Be just my luck they'll all be knackered Monday morning.

Cheers Phil, much appreciated, looking forward to it myself.

The cats last Monday (27/06) were 68003 and 68006, although I'm not certain that that's still the case.

Looking forward to the trip, though.

If 021 and 025 do indeed produce I'll be well jealous, needing both of 'em!

Have a beast of a time, hope 156457 finally produces for you too. Happy hunting squire!

LSGsMagicRoundabout​
4/7/16​

Im up at silly o'clock, when the alarm rings at half 4 in the morning, I have the distinct urge to turn over and go back to sleep and enjoy a lie in, it's my day off for gods sake. However I race out of bed, well,it was more like a grumbling plod to the kitchen, flick the kettle on, make a coffee and go and sit on the back steps, it's not a bad morning really considering the time, I tell myself, I light a ciggy and contemplate todays journey. The usual obloutions are done, the bag packed and by 0525, I'm in my flatmates car, for a lift to Central.

Before I go ono the Station, I nip over to Greggs and get a coffee, I also pause for a ciggy and synchronise my watch by the clock on the outside of Central, mines about 5mins fast, before making my way towards platform 1, to see what the 156 is there, I've got all but 2 of Northern's DMU's, 156420 and 144015, evade me but I'm a creature of habbit, so I go check it out regardless, 156484 is noted before turning on my heels, to wander down platform 2, to the south end of the platform. Theres nothing in the bays but at least the thunderbird has changed, not by much, 67024, has been replaced by 67023, a skip that I had from Hereford to Chester, whilst on my HoE, a good while back, with a certain Mr Techniquest, who joined me, part of the way to Shrewsbury, after we'd had a few beers in the Kings Fee first.

Like a nomad, I wandered back up said platform, as I wanted to be in position to see which blunt I was getting to Edinburgh and be able to get the stock as it rolled into the platform off Heaton, time was tight at Edinburgh, I had 15mins before I had to get the 08.22 to Queen St, plus the 06.22 booked into platform 8, so I had the shananigans of getting over the bridge before I could do a quick sweep round Waverley (where potential winners for sight could be lurking), so doing it now, saved farting on and allowed me to get cracking. I'm a good half way back up the platform, when 43302 rolls in beside me, I'm halfway through getting the stock, when a) I realise it's not needed and b0 there's window stickers(who used to collect them as a kid?) for Edinburgh Waverley, when was the 1S01 changed from a blunt to an HST diagram? Granted it's 2 years or so, since I last got on this train but I was still expecting a blunt and just thought this was going to Kings Cross. Great news then, 43302's dud, so's the stock and rear power car, which will lead the charge North, 43295 is dud too. I'm not having much luck roping in my last 8 or so VTEC HSTs of late am I. A cursory bollocks is made and I wander back to coach M and find my seat.

Thankfully I've got what I requested, a forward facing window seat but with 3 other reservations around me, however no-one showed so I had a space to stretch out to myself for the journey North, getting a coffee just after Morpeth and a couple more refills before breakfast was served, just before Berwick. Good fare too, I walloped it down, with more coffee and two slices of toast, feeling all the better for it too.

Nothing really to report till Craigentinny, Heaton, saw GC's Gronk, 08648 plus one of their 180's, the flying banana, we were going too fast to get the stock of it though and a clutch of UID 142's. Oxwellmains was empty bar one of the LeFarge shunters and at Craigentinny, there was a few Cross Country HST coaches lying round the back, 08627, marooon 66743 and first cop of the day, an HST barrier coach 6394, which looks like it's had a new paint job.

Arriving into Waverley bang on time, I made haste off the train and over the bridge, 92014 was there, with the Cally sleeper stock, no winners among them either, wether 92014 worked it I'm not sure but it was responsible to take the stock up to Polmadie.

90044 was parked up in the station and 67024, god, I'm sick of the sight of this skip, was in the the South end bay. INothing else of note, so I made for the 08.22 to Queen St, which was off to Helensburgh, I think, formed off all round winner 334031 and winner 334039, for a maiden voyage on a 334, sitting in the very front seats next to the cab of 334031. I was expecting a bit motor coach noise, I was wrong, sorry if your a 334 fan but it was as dull as ditch water, I was very disappointed. Long gone are these days
(this photo aint mine but is that of @plodder1973) hope he doesn't mind me using this photo. Still kicking and screaming she is too, back in her ole pyjamas and re-united with its name, I thought I was gonna cry when this was tweeted to me. Ah the memories this evoked. Trying to get as far away from the gripper, to get more out of our tickets, to get more of these turns in. I miss those days. Anyway I digress, On route to Queen St, I managed to click 158740 on Hymarket depot and 334011 at Uphall, so it wasn't all bad.

Into the depths of Queen St Low Level, where now I had to go and purchase my Roundabout ticket, I did try to get it at Newcastle, the day before but alas they couldn't find it, much to the guy behind the counters disappointment, saying, that would of been a first for me. I then had to walk through Queen St High Level after purchasing the Rover, out the station round and back onto, to access the low level platforms, for a train to Hyndland, after a short wait, winner 334008 and AR winner 334023 arrived and took me the few miles, to one of my all time fave little stations of Hyndland.

I had about a half an hour at Hyndland, I copped a couple more EMU's and notably 321420 and still in London Midland livery, then double cops 318256 and 321416 also rolled in, I did think of returning back to Queen St with them but surprisingly thought better of it, I'm normally a make hay while the sun shines type of person but time was of the essence today. Soon after they departed, I thought I'd ensnared my last ScotRail 156, the now infamous (and no doubt boring everyone rigid, with my ever present ramblings for its requirement) 156457 passing through, It was close but no cigar, it was 156456:cry:, I recoiled, head in hands, like when your team hits the post, when it looks a certain goal. After a quick nip off the platform for a ciggy but close enough to see stuff coming and going without breaking the law, I returned for the spin to Glasgow Central with dud 318252, at the time I thought it was a winner and but it was a welcome break from the 334's, now this was a noisy ole EMU, thats more like it. On the way I managed to cop 334036 at Partick.

I bailed 318252 and strode up to the High Level Platforms, as I entered the light, I coppied both 380002 and 380012 without breaking stride, ah cheers I said to myself, I had a wander round to the PIS to check what time the Lannark trains were, for a ride up to Motherwell later and also to pass Polmadie, in hope, that maybe, any of the super EDs below 73969 might be on show. I had about 10mins, to amble round the platforms to seek out any requirements, only 314216 obliged before I boarded winner 380016 for a ride out to a place I'd never been to, Paisley Gilmour Street and a maiden voyage on the 380's. Sound wise they're nothing spectacular but the acceleration seems quite impressive, plus they have sockets to charge your phone, which I did, a top up wont harm, so that was a bonus.

I have to say I was quite impressed with Gilmour Street, that said, I needed a cold drink so bailed down the stair and found a WH Smiths and got a bottle of coke, made my way through the underpass and stood watching various 380's whizz to various places before AR winner 314210 arrived to take me back to Glasgow Central, again sitting in the motor coach, enjoying the noise of an ole fashioned EMU.

Back at Central I hopped off 314210 and made over to the 380 bound for Lannark, no problems with the roundabout ticket, it actually opens barriers, so straight through and onto another AR winner, this time 380103 for the spin past Polmadie and up to Motherwell, clicking 314204 on the way out the station, nothing of note at Polmadie, I thought I'd clicked the gronk 08954 but on checking the NREA, I actually hadn't, 57302 was also there along with 92014, which I'd seen at Waverley earlier. 37059 was outside te DRS Depot at Motherell, and just inside the depot were two UID Moggies(68's), now fishquinn and postye had reliably informed me 68025 and 68021, were on tonights fife circle turns, so I assumed, that these would be them, however at the ths time, I couldn't ID them due to cop 320303 being in the way.

I'd no sooner bailed 380103 when I copped and saw double AR winners 320306 and 321412 leave before I had a chance to even run for them. I was feeling peckish, so I thought, may as well go for a ciggy and go to the infamous, Meet n Eat, outside the station.

I looked the watch and found that it was 5 to 12, christ wheres that time gone, I'd barely stopped, I had 3 and a half hours max, before I had to make tracks outta Glasgow. At 12, I was singing a song a late, great friend used to sing at lunchtime, he was diabetic and had set times for meals, I travelled all over this country, spending hours with him on coaches, going to the footy and having many a laugh and just as many beers, I'd only got to know him properly on the coach journeys because as I got on one, to find my seat, he shouted to me, do me a favour sit next to me, I said but such and such is down to sit there aint he, really, I'll sort that, he said. This guy came up the bus and said, sorry son, your in my seat, I said, ah alright and went to get up, When my mate said, sorry there's been a change of plan mate, your up there on the left, 3 from the back by the window, as the guy walked away, I asked, why don't you want him sitting next to you?, he said, is your nose bust?, he works on the bins and he bloody smells like a bloody badger, SO HE'S NOT SITTING THERE. I laughed and said, Ok. At 12 o'clock prompt, he'd break into song, singing, "DO NOT FORSAKE ME OH MY DARLING, ON THIS OUR WEDDING Daaaaayy", for those not old enough to know, its from the Western, High Noon, it became so normal, we'd normally join in with him, as the bait box was presented, to a cheer all round Here I am, in Motherwell in the rain, remembering him, laughing at another old memory, of when we won the domino card at an away match, in the clubs clubhouse, we used to put two each on and go halfers, this day we won £50 between us, the woman handed him the money and he turned and said, oh great that'll pay us into the speedway(his other great passion) tomorrow, I said, what you on about, speedway, I don't go to the speedway, he said, you are, if you want to get your grubby claws on half of this and tucked, the majority into his pocket, gave me a tenner and said, gan get 2 pints each. I was gobsmacked but done it:lol:. I'd made the mistake of telling him, my uncle used to take me to the speedway, when I was a kid, you'll have to come with me one night, my missus won't, I'd said, aye, maybe one night deffo:roll:, well this time I had no option but to go, so the next night, I met him and he gave me £20, after we'd got through the turnstile, turns out he had 2 free tickets for us, apparently he'd won them at a previous meet, what a laugh it was though, my ribs were aching with laughing, everytime he won tickets after that, we always went, he had a deadpan whit and was one of the funniest blokes, I've ever met. Now he'd be chuckling, as I'm singing his song (and now his praises on here), as I order a bacon and egg sarnie and a large coffee, for the princely sum of £2.70 and boy was it good. I raise my coffee to the sky and say under my breath, I bet your making them laugh up there, you barmy old get and then laugh to myself, as I picture him saying, less of the old, you little sh*t. Funny how things just jog your memory, sorry for going off topic a bit but it was quite a poigniant moment for me at the time.

Anyway enough rambling, next up was a move to Whiflet, for a pass at Mossend Yard, there was a few bits n bobs on, 90028, 66041, 66161 and 08532, plus a few I couldn't see due being parked behind something or covered by the trees at the bottom end of the yard, nothing needed but I was happy because I was onboard double AR winners 318258 & 318263. I must've spent roughly 15 minutes here at most before winner, 334009 came and whisked me off back to Motherwell, where handily we got a signal check outside the DRS Depot, where I could ID cop 68021, which boded well for this evenings entertainment. With time marching on, I decided to take the next train out of Motherwell back to Glasgow Central. Winner 380002 was given the job, where just outside Uddingston, 92032 was stood at a signal going via a freight only or branch line, I presume to either Mossend or Coatbridge, I'm sure someone will know, I certainly don't. As we pass Polmadie, nothing has changed, so I sit and relax a bit. I had another close call, at Glasgow Central, this time with a pendo, my last one for sight is 390136, however the one in the station was 390134. Just to poke fun at me, there was plenty 156's around but none were the one I was after. On the way over to the low level platforms, I was now, what I called Wombling, overground, underground wombling free, off we go to hyndland with LSG, on the way towards the Low Level entrance, I did manage to get 380112 onto the cops list. Fresh duds 334008 & 023 took me off to Hyndland, about 10mins later, winner 320306 to take me to Queen St. I couldn't find the platform I was after for my train to Croy and after going out the Station and back, when I did eventually bloody find it, my train was leaving, meaning I'd missed my connection, thankfully I had an off peak single from Croy to Edinburgh, not an advance ticket.

Next one was about 20mins away and if it came on time, I'd have about a +8 at Croy, however that turned up late, I was now on a +3, with a same platform connection, all was not lost, especially with AR winner 170428 and winner 170461 and we basically crawled to Lenzie and were halted for 8 minutes at Bishopbriggs, thus bollocksing up any hope of getting my connection at Croy, to get to Haymarket for kicking out time for the Evening peak, though some small consolation was clicking 320302, whilst waiting at Bishopbriggs. At 16.24, winner 170471 rolled in to take me on to Edinburgh, leaving with me a +14 onto my next move.

I got to Wavweley and quickly made a hastey exit through the barriers in time to see 68021 thrash it's way out with the 17.08 to Glenrothes with Thornton and it sounded like pure heaven too.

I made my way to the platform for the 17.20 to Cardenden, showed my anytime ticket and stood where the front door of the front coach would stop, in rolled winner 68025 about 2 mins late, I got my prime spot, front window right behind the loco, just after half past, the driver pulled back the power handle and we thundered out of Waverley into the tunnels, the noise was amazing, as the rolling thunder echoed off the walls. We left Haymarket in a bit of a thrash, as the driver tried to make up time, it was stotting down with rain now, so I kept my head inside but had the window down, to hear the sweet symphony of that Caterpillar engine. After stopping at Dalmeny, with wet tracks, a slight gradient and curve up to the Forth Rail Bridge, 68025 had bit of a task getting going, up until the driver pulled the power handle back and opened her up with a plume of clag and the noisiest, gutteral growl I've heard for many a year, as we climbed the gradient, I was at the window, going, oh sweet jesus, listen that. Pure unadulterated pleasure, I still smile now, thinking about it. Time was marching on and my original +17 at Dunfermline Town had been eaten away, with the late departure, I was down to a +7 on leaving Waverley, thankfully we'd pulled a couple of minutes back and I did think of bailing at Inverkeithing but at Inverkeithing, I was still on a +9, so ploughed on regardless. I sadly bailed off 68025 and briefly listened to it rumbling away towards Cardenden, before picking up a brisk pace through the underpass, for the 18.07 down to Inverkeithing, I had to admit, I was grinning like a DRS cat, at that performance away from Dalmeny.

A mere 6mins later, winner 170413 arrived to take me down to Inverkeithing, poor turbo wasn't even close to a pale shadow of the beast that had just entertained from Edinburgh but I just couldn't stop grinning. Now for the fester at Inverkeithing, at least now, I could have a ciggy in relative peace and theres enough goes through the station to stave off the boredem, added bonus if your a bus crank too, which I'm not, the half an hour fester tends to whizz by, at 18.50 into view comes winner 68021 for the penultimate move of the day. 68021 was a bit of a powerhouse too, unfortunately it had 68025's performance to follow and it was never going to beat that, god I wished it had but I aint complaining because those Caterpillar engines still sounded awesome. Alll to soon, we'd arrived at Haymarket, where I clicked 158869 for sight. We rumbled through the tunnels into Waverley where unfortunately, I had to bail.

With an hour and 3 quarters to go till my train home, I had a quick peruse round the station before walking up the ramp had a ciggy and waited to see if I could add any of the trams to my cops list, unfortunately I didn't, so I nipped over to McDonalds to get out the rain, got a coffee and a cheeseburger, when it dawned on me, I could use the first clas lounge. What a berk, so I made out back to the station, clicking 158735 before I made my way to the rather lavish surroundings of the first class lounge, where I topped up my caffiene levels further. With 10mins till my train, I said my goodbyes and made for platform 19 and the last train of the day, would I be lucky with the HST home, in short no, it was double duds again, this time 43300 and 43238. The journey home was on the plush tush too, so I had chicken Ceaser salad wraps, with crips and a couple of bottles of coke, relaxing in my posh seats

for the uneventful journey back home. It had been an excellent day, with 68025's performance being the ultimate highlight but I was cream crackered when I got home but still sporting that silly grin when I went to bed.

Reference the roundabout ticket, it isn't found under the usual rover screen but issued as a single to "Roundabout". It used to be able to be purchased from the TVMs at Glasgow Central which did save some time but the last time I was in Glasgow that option has been removed :(

Anyhow, sounded like a rather good day in Glasgow, filling up your books with the Scot EMUs

321420 is a GN unit, not an ex LM unfortunetly. Just pointing it out in case your notes are wrong.

68025 and 68012.
Didn't know 'A Shropshire Mog' had gone up North ;)

Glad that my gen was right!

Another excellent read there! I could almost hear the cat thrash (I've not been on one for 8 days and that was only on a Snow Hell to Moor Street so I'm missing them. Bring on Saturday and 178 miles off them from Leam to Marylebone and back) reading this!

oh dear, with 321420, dunno what I've done there. Will have to check the dictaphone. I've edited the moggies number now. Gotta say, that was best one, I've had so far by a mile and I've loved em all for haulage.

I'll have to remember that about the roundabout ticket kite. Yeah I still need a load but it was nice to get a few more off the list for sure. I'm catching up kite, just about another 4500 for haulage and I'll be nearly equal.

Monster of a read there LSG, a most enjoyable read to go with coffee and chocolate digestives for breakfast!

321420 (and indeed the other 321s you saw) will have been former 321/4s, they're now 320/4s and numbered 320411 to 320417.

A nice trip down Memory Lane for you at Motherwell, and I'm glad Paisley was good to you. Hyndland certainly did you proud too!

So very jealous of the 68s, both required for everything here. The thrash sounds extremely epic, wish I could have been!

Very long day all in all but totally worth it. Shame about the lack of winner power cars on your ECML moves though!

cheers tech, yeah have some great memories. I just smile when I think of 68025 bud.No need to be jealous, we'll all be geting them soon, an Anglia move, which is an untapped area, for nearly as long as it was for FoSS area. certainly seems to be on the cards even more so

Yup, you dodged a bullet there by heading up on Monday. Was gonna go for them myself yesterday but when I saw the pair of 68s on Motherwell shed I opted not to. Crackin' read though, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Smashing stuff, I enjoyed the old anecdotes as well :)
That shot of 47712 certainly brought back some memories.
