Hi all
I'm off to Reading tomorrow as my class 43 page is looking very bleak.
I'm travelling from Banbury by train.
Are there any places on the way to look out for where loco's might be stabled.
Thanks for your time

As you travel southbound, Hinksey is on your right hand side.

Maybe take a trip out to Reading West to grab some of the freight movements from Southampton?

If you want to see some locos at Didcot, I recommend you get a stopping train to Didcot (advertised to Ealing Broadway), where it brushes past the yard, then get a HST to Reading. (The stopper is quite slow)

Thanks cactuswirly. I did Reading last Weds and it was fab.
I went mainly for class 43. The 59's ( including a double header ) were a welcome addition and the pair of class 37's an added bonus.
I may do Didcot next week.
