Rail replacement bus cab
I took a bus to Denmark Hill, where I saw 37601+37603+373311/373312 pass through with 5X11. Then I went to Blackfriars, where I took a Thameslink to East Croydon to visit some shops. Then I took the 16:13 Southern service towards Victoria. At Clapham Junction, I glanced over to the SWT platforms to see if there was any freight. I saw a Fragonset loco. I quickly made my way to platform 3. It was 47703! As I took my camera out of my bag, the light loco clagged just like this. I then hurried back to the Southern platforms, where a Victoria train was waiting. I took that. As we approached Victoria, 47703 was adjacent to us. I disembarked, then walked to the SET platforms, where Tangmere had just arrived. I went to the end of the plat 2, a minute or 2 before 47703 arrived. It didn't hang about, as it only stayed for 5 minutes. When it left, there was a brilliant show of clag, 3 times the driver throttled! The best picture I could have gotten of it was blurred :(. So I took a train to Lewisham. A 67 was in Stewarts Lane. After spending a little while at the shops there, I took a 225 to Canada Water, then a 47 to London Bridge, where there was a 508 and Connex livered 456024. I then took the 18:51 service to Forest Hill.

I shall visit Norwich on Saturday, to see 37425, and Victoria early in the morning, as something has to be hauling the railtour in, and as 47703 is expected to take it out, one of Fragonset's locos must be bring it it.....

Yeah, read it passed through East London midday today. Forget that, I have a different plan to see some other traction. I arrived at Denmark Hill today at 14:59, as my EPS pic of yesterday's 37s was grossly out of focus due to me messing around with the redeye reduction feature. However, I got a beautiful pic today. I also saw a bonus of a double headed 92 working and saw 66704 light. GBRF's 66s are a bit knackered. I bet you could have seen it Julian, as it was running around 20 late. Today's EPS and yesterday.
