    Just got on the Victoria - Ashford stopper.

    Walked past one Electrostar in Southern two tone livery and on to a Thameslink liveried one. Not something I've had before so quite interesting.

    Not as exciting as having a phase 1 CIG on the South East (which sadly I never had) but a change indeed.

    My "Thameslink" unit is also in Southern upholstery.

    Is this the London Bridge remodeling mixing everything up?

    There is a couple of threads about this. Southeastern are borrowing 6x 377s from Thameslink.

    Both the 377/5s and the 387s have got southern spec interiors, although from different eras, which is most noticeable in the chair design, but also in the colour of the grab poles.

    Ah cheers. The Southern colour scheme looks nicer, though I can't say it feels more comfortable.

    Ah cheers. Lost track when they started giving Southern units numbers instead of three letter codes.
