Hi I was wondering if anyone knows the following information about drivers and OBS route knowledge for Southern
(for routes and diversionary purposes)

10 Where drivers are based (Eastbourne, Barnham, etc)
2) Where OBS's are based (Eastbourne, Barnham, etc)
3) Which depots sign what stock (455's, 377's etc)
4) Which depots sign what routes (Bognor Regis, Southampton, etc)

Any help would be much appreciated

Cheers Aiden :)

I saw this but from my knowledge, it's not complete and some parts are completely wrong mostly due to it being 9 yrs old now

I saw this but from my knowledge, it's not complete and some parts are completely wrong mostly due to it being 9 yrs old now
Feel free to let me know what parts are completely wrong. The info I have posted comes from a variety of different people (some who post publicly and others who send me PMs) and nobody else has complained about the accuracy of the Southern info, though I'm happy to change things if it turns out there are mistakes.

With regards to the age of the post, I wonder if you're getting confused with the year I first joined Railforums, which was indeed 2012 (ironically enough the reason I joined was to correct some false information being posted about my then employer) - I think on certain browsers that detail might show up rather prominently?

Rest assured the Route and Traction Knowledge list was first posted by me in 2020 and has been kept as up to date as possible ever since.

I can only assume the OP is getting 2012 from the thread starter (craigybagel). The date he joined the forum.
When you open the thread from the first page it's probably the first date you see :idea: (apart from the obvious date the thread was started at the top of the page)
