    The three preservation photos of 32473 are all at the Bluebell Railway.

    Thanks for the links to the collection, really looking forward to seeing 473 back in steam in the near future.

    Here are three links to photos my Dad took of E4's during the 1960's.

    32495 at Eastbourne Shed in 1960/61 - https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/EyR-0F9jWcqXQyWAvrjPEtMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink

    32475 at Eastbourne Shed in 1962 - https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/oxXG0WwtYuChvp_Dp99TydMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink

    473 departing Horsted Keynes on 15th Sept. 1963 - https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/cVkUK4U6BHIysv7YCxqGoNMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink

    Neil,
    32500 isn't at Eastleigh. That looks like Nine elms judging by the condition of the shed in the background.

    I'm also uncertain about 32473 at Vauxhall as well. But for the life of me I cant think where it could be.

    Hi Southernman99

    Thanks for your comments, I have changed the 32500 location but with a question mark

    as to 32473, the photo was taken by Tony Gillett a Preston based driver, I have loads of his photos and his locations are usually correct
    anyone else able to confirm the location/

    Neil
