Well after such a great red pen day on Saturday this week was liekly to be less than interesting – or so I thought.
Arrived at the depot and 171721 stabled just inside the gates. During the day 5J79 LBG-SRS arrived in the form of 171726.
Heard that the second of the Class 170s (ex Scotrails aka McTurbos) was being brought down from Stewarts Lans Depot. 1135 Stewarts Lane T&R.S.M.D to Selhurst T&R.S.M.D set off 28 minutes late but arrived on depot just 1 minute late. It is, as I write, 170423 is stabled on 19 road. My phone decided to go into a progressive vegitive state at lunchtime so after work I had to go and get it sorted. a few delays saw me on 2J69 LBG-WCY 455843, 455824. At West Croydon I saw 378210 on 9D45 WCY-DKJ which means I only have one 378 to go 🙂
The God’s are again conspiring against me. I tried to get out a few days running now for the freight that pass here but to no avail. BUT I did manage to get out for 7V00 1215 Newhaven Day Aggregates to Acton T.C. 59103 and then 30 minutes or so later 6Z79 0910 Marks Tey Tarmac to Crawley New Yard R.M.C. 66201
