No but only one is in use at any one time. Not sure if there are set diagrams but I found it to be the one I hadn't been on totally by chance!Jonno2055 said:Are both Lymington Cigs in BR Blue?

Dennis said:Most of the Wessex units I saw yesterday were still branded although a couple of 150's were as shown in DCs pic. Westbury station signs have also lost their Wessex branding.
Shame about the weather yesterday - bright and sunny first thing, planned to go out on the bike linesiding between Trowbridge and Bristol before Firstification occurs. Glad I checked the forecast first!
Chris, I have always found the slammers to work weekday and weekend duties.ChrisM said:Great picture of 1497,finding good locations on the branch is very hard but between the level crossing and Ampress Halt offers some lineside locations if the trees are kept cut back.
The slammers normally work on a week 'on' then a week 'off' diagram.
From the information i was told they worked a week on then week off (monday - sunday) but i have seen 1497 on a wednesday/thursday and then 1498 on the friday.tubechallenger said:Chris, I have always found the slammers to work weekday and weekend duties.
