    Good photo though; As they're taking both support coaches (naturally), wonder what the load is going to be ??

    Hopefully not going all the way backwards...

    Load, well I'm in coach J then usually the staff coach/buffet and 2 support = 12. No problem even if 5043 is just along for the ride...... :whistle:

    Just a bit of light banter, of course we want them to take it in turns to make the noise.

    About 10 down through Acton Bridge with 5043 in front. :eek:hwell:

    Yeah, passed it at Imperial Wharf at 1135 this morning, presume it went via Addlestone to end up at Surbition... Imagine its easier to get onto Wimbledon that way as well.
