    MENTOR or Radio Survey, the loose change in my pocket would be on Radio Survey, can't check the roster at the moment.

    I saw 37409 lurking at Tring on Monday night with some yellow coaches so probably that. Don't know what the train was for exactly but I don't think it was MENTOR.

    MENTOR is alive and kicking, RSC 1 and 3 are doing the rounds at the moment too.

    Here Hydro, what's the one I've seen in Selhurst yard a few times recently? The bit in the middle, painted black, in a train that's mostly yellow, looks like two halves of a wagon welded together like a cut'n'shut.

    It was a standard test train, though not sure which coach it had in it this time. Its the one that runs approx every 4-6 weeks (Mon - Wed) on the Southern WCML though usually with a 31, headcodes are normally 3Q68-3Q70 dependng on which day it is on in the diagram . This is the 1st time I've seen it with a 37 though.

    It's an ultrasonic working then. They are fairly unusual with DRS 37's, yes.
