If that's the diesel option I'll take the kettle!I did the Blue Pullman HST St Pancras Manchester round trip in December, and I enjoyed the feeling speeding past most modern traction on the main lines and keeping to schedule, so it's a thumbs up to Diesel for me.
The ultimate for me though would be a CIG or VEP which may one day happen!
A 76 and.77 tour using the DC wires down to Sunderland,. Sorted!Each to their own...
Travelled/commuted on many a CIG/VEP in my time and a tour in them wouldn't interest me. However, a Thumper on the other hand.... (even though I've travelled on many)
I never got to travel behind a Class 76 - now that would be an interesting one for me...
Any Southern Region EMU/DEMU built between 1951 and 1974 (excluding PEP's)
So I’m not alone! I should try a tour on the Hastings unit, but a 205 or 207 would be even better as I (very) occasionally travelled on them. The reason I singled out a CIG or VEP is that it could realistically happen, but an EPB would be great!
