Read in a rail mag that I think DRS are going to move into the dead Southall DMU depot. Alot of their work is centred around London and they wanted a base to keep light engines closer to the capital.

Should prove for an excellent photo location of Loco's from the near by footbridge :)

I swear it was FM rail who wanted to move in to Southall (where 34067 Tangmere is sometimes kept), to avoid light engine movements around busy lines in the capital-in essence wasting paths.

FM Rail already use it. A few weeks ago, some stock and 47703 were stabled there. Why would DRS want to use Southall? None of their services go near there!
