Well I was thwarted last night. I had planned to pop out to Selhurst and watch the new 700 pass through but it was cancelled 😦 So instead of seeing photos of the train you get my usual drivel!
Of course it wouldn’t be a normal day if 2A11 BTN-VIC was not late … and 377460, 377113 upheld the tradition. The ECS 5L01 VIC-EGR returned to platform 1 with 377417, 377401, 377474 doing the turn today. The Northbound 1U13 GTW-VIC was 442412, 442423. Now the young lady that arrived this morning in the very tight black shiny trousers was a welcome distraction but she was soon forgotten when 66758 powered through at the head of 6O54 Bardon Hill Gbrf to Crawley New Yard Gbrf, and the Thameslink 2V94 SRS-LUT arrived with 319381, 319372 which the young lady got on (I now feel like a dirty old man but confession is good for the soul). Once 2V94 made way, 5M05 SRS-CLJ ECS 377703 picked up the guard and off it went. At the same time the 1D12 VIC-GTW passed with 442403 performing the duties. There was time for 2F04 VIC-ORE 377117 and 5G11 VIC-ECR ECS 377405, 377446 to show up before 377501, 377515 2V98 SRS-BDM arrived.
By Thornton Heath we were a couple of minutes late but that gave me a chance to note that 442405 was on 1D16 VIC-GTW.
At Herne Hill 1W03 BDM-BTN was formed of 387112, 387120.
Back in to the habit of SE HS spotting today and up on platform 11 1J06 STP-RAM was formed of 395012, 395004 was on platform 12 with 5T94 STP-MDW and on platform 13 1F08 STP-FAV was 395022.
Kings Cross had 67021 (no change there folks) at the Thunderbird at 06:52 which was the time my train left 1C42 KGX-CBG 365516 from platform 0!
At ‘The Park’ 2F07 MOG-SVG 313051, 313033 took me to Hornsey.
There was nothing in Ferme Park this morning. At Hornsey 66176 passed at 09:50 with 6H86 2139 Heck Plasmor P S to Bow Depot, that will form 4E25 Bow – Heck. Looks like 4E26 Dollands Moor to Scunthorpe is cancelled. 6L37 looks like it will be a light engine movement. 70803 was the light loco. 6E40 0940 Grain Foster Yeoman Gbrf to Ferme Park Rec Ln Gbrf is arriving at the moment with 66765 at the front.
Home time !!!! Well 2K02 WGC-MOG 313062, that’s the tird time this week this one has been on that service!
At ‘The Park’ my train was right time, 2C51 CBG-KGX 317346 (for a change) butthings just couldn’t go to plan and it crept all the way into Kings Cross causing me to miss 1W43 😦
Over at St. Pancras I decided to pop upstairs on the Legendary Quest For 395016. Yep you guessed it. Not there. What was there though was 395009 on 1J80 STP-RAM, 395019 on 1F46 STP-RAM. Then it was downstairs to the Low Level to get my train which was 387111, 387106 1W45 BDM-BTN. Whilst on this one I saw 2S93 BFR-RTR 465180, 466001 on platform 4.
Little else was seen that I could actually write down, although I was somewhat distracted by the 30-something blonde lady in my carriage 🙂 .
