    I'll be up early in the morning to see 70013 leave Haywards Heath on Saturday and hopefully on arrival back. Second time I'll have seen Olly C.

    I intend to see it at Cosham. Am looking forward to it. Need to make sure she is in good shape for her trip over the crossing onto the NNR!

    I believe this is the case as engineering works are taking place in the Dorking area and Three Bridges to Billingshurst (from what I saw earlier coming back from college).

    My Dad and I will probably go to the road bridge over the line where Clayton Tunnel is to phot Cromwell. But off home then afterwards & unfortunately no Mid-Hants gala for us this year as we've been going to the Bluebell practically every w/e for the past 3 or 4 weeks and then it's back up there next Saturday for the PTS course and the missus and mother are getting a bit naffed off with my Dad and I with it all.

    The train is reported to consist of 11 dual braked coaches plus support coach. For photographers around the
    Dundas Aqueduct area, a speed limit of 15 mph applies in both directions. Thanks to Roger Smith. <BJ>

    I'd imagine its the Mark2 set in Southern Green as thats whats usually based at Southall.

    uksteam.info says wcrc, which is maroon.

    For those who may be going to phot on the eastleigh-romsey branch, chandlers ford is looking to be a good area. If any interested on the current best places, please pm me as i live there and have been exploring as usual.

    Would have pics if it wasnt for a gentleman who thought it fun to stand right on the end of the platform ramp in everyones way :(

    Tom,
    It may be disappointing to have someone get in the way of a picture opportunity,but there is no need for the SEVEN letter word on here.Especially when you have the footer that you have.
