Polish School finished at 13:30
I walked quickly to Clapham South
So I could catch the 13:39 Northern line (High Barnet via Bank)
to Bank, I arrive at Bank at 13:59 (20mins journey)
I rushed quickly to the Central line (First Carriage Northern line Northbound>Bank) and I took 14:02 Central line (Woodford) to Liverpool Street, I saw Penny Black 90019 on platform 7 with a rake of mixed MK3s and DBSO at the front :(
So I decided to take the 14:28 OWA Cambridge Train to Tottenham Hale, it was formed of a Refurbished 317/6 (it makes a big difference!!)
I got off a Tottenham Hale
and I decided to take the Victoria line to Oxford Circus and then rushed to the other platform for the Southbound Bumpy line (bakerloo line) to Piccadilly Circus, I then crossed to the other platform and took photos of the 72MKIITS
Then I took the train down to Embankment and changed for Circle line for Victoria
I took 15:36 BEX (Brighton Express) to Clapham Junction
I waited for the Silverlink 313 to come to platform 17, to my suprise it didn't as this morning it went to platform 17, then I took 16:08 Silverlink to Kensington Olympia, I saw D-stock Refurb on T152 Olympia Shuttle (There is always a guarantee that you will get a D-stock Refurb on a Olympia Shuttle)
Then I took 16:45 to Willesden Junction, I got off at Willesden Junction, I saw the cl47854+57601 passing by (cl47 was clagging like a steam engine!!)
Then I took 17:08 Silverlink to Kensington Olympia, I decided to wait for the class 92 that was meant to pass later, (it didn't turn up :( ) While waiting a Cl373 Eurostar unit roared past (*** Holland-on-rail, use Olympia as location for Eurostar ECS) I took T152 Refurb-D78 to Earl's Court and I crossed to the other platform to find a Refurb D78 for Wimbledon (COOL!!! Double Refurbs!!!)
I got off at West Brompton and went home

That was my day

Not necessarily! It's not at all uncommon to find both of the Olympia services being worked by unrefurbished stock simultaneously.
