Morning,

Yesterday I was dragged from meeting to meeting and to be fair there wasn’t much about so I ended up with zero sightings.

I do want to say my thoughts go to the family and friends of those killed or injured in Berlin last night.

Saturday Uni Jolly (17/12/2016)

Well the boy has got himself a job up there and I have to be brutally honest here I miss him as he’s not going to be home much over Christmas. Still he needs to work. So here is my day’s summary including a nice little surprise for me.
Selhurst.
2Y79 Victoria to Caterham 377613 was due in at 08:40 but finally arrived at 08:49. Before it finally arrived 1A17 Brighton to Victoria passed with 387224, 387203 then 1U37 Gatwick Airport to Victora followed with 387207 which looked rather full.

At Blackfriars was 700109. Now according to Open Train Times it was 2W19 which was a Brighton to Bedford service but aos on OTT it was cancelled throughout!!! Strange. Whilst int the platform, 2W21 Bedford to Three Bridges arrived on platform 1 as 387122, 387103.

St. Pancras International.
Up popped up to the High Speed platforms and there were two units in; 395013 was on 1F20 St Pancras to Faversham and 395015 was on St Pancras to Margate and I managed to get on the platform and snap a photo of each on my phone.Down and over to the International section I noted:

The thunderbird was 670132.

Ferme Park.
It was here I got my surprise. Stabled at the North end was a Network Rail yellow DMU. A good squint of the eyes revealed 950001 Network Rail Track Assessment DMU. Not only a surprise but a ‘Cop’ too. On the opposite side I managed to see 700103 in Hornsey yard.

Hatfield.
1C52 Peterborough to Kings Cross 365504 took me back to London.

Kings Cross.

St Pancras International.
After a run down the steps I managed to catch 2W43 Bedford to Three Bridges 700103 back to East Croydon.

Whilst waiting for my train I managed to note:
2W46 THree Bridges to Bedford 387124.
