The SLOA Pullman set were MK1 Met Cams. The WCML Pullmans were MK2 of BR build.
'The SLOA Pullman sets were Mk1 Met Cams'.......Of which there are several in preservation.
I had always assumed that they were waiting for one to become available. I'd have thought the logical power car would be 43002 - given its name etc.
I think there are some stored but none withdrawn so far (other than those that have been scrapped after accidents)
Are the Mk. 1 MetCamm Pullmans the ones used in "reversed" livery on the ECML services in the early 70s?
Yes they are.
Thanks - thought so.
Which one? Top Of The Pops? Or Techni?uest?
It would not shock me in a few years for a millionaire owner or a.n.other group to decide that ‘Top of the Pops’ is the name they want it to have, or for it to be painted in a livery that it never carried in its working life, or for a face to be stuck on it as a tie in with a children’s programme.
Of course, I am looking forward to 41001 and it’s train going to the IOW for a Diesel Giants Gala.
Such a pity that it would be too heavy for the ferries
The'wedge' front end would soon adjust the clearances in the Ryde tunnels so that the A4 and West Country gala could go ahead in 2020.....
Are you trying to give a certain member a heart attack?
You could always find a bigger ferry.
Then the harbour master will have to move all the small boats from the passage

Three boats were cut adrift when a car ferry "ploughed through their moorings" in thick fog, the RNLI has said.
The collision in Cowes Harbour involved the ferry Red Eagle on a 05:30 BST sailing from East Cowes to Southampton.
A catamaran and a channel marker post were struck and two yachts were later found drifting outside the harbour, Cowes lifeboat said.
Ferry operator Red Funnel said no-one had been injured and the ferry had been withdrawn from service.

In a statement, the company said the ferry "came into light contact with a small yacht moored overnight in the fairway at Cowes".
Coastguards said the ferry reported at 06:40 BST that it "may have made contact with a moored vessel".
The lifeboat said two Daring class yachts were recovered during a two-hour search in fog for drifting vessels.

The catamaran, owned by the lifeboat's chaplain, was found pushed up against a third yacht, the RNLI said.
The chaplain, the Reverend Andrew Poppe, said the catamaran's mooring strop had been snapped.
"It was hit hard enough that my insurers have recommended an inspection for hull integrity damage," he said.
Red Funnel said the ferry's sailings on Thursday had been cancelled while a "full investigation" was carried out.
The Red Funnel freight ferry Red Kestrel currently under construction? Even better, at Cammell Laird in Birkenhead.
Absolutely nuts, but one can't deny there's plenty of air braked stock already on the railway just waiting for 41001 to pull!

What's happened with the Project Miller Twitter?
Seems to have been defunct for a couple of years now. No new information to post?
Could an air brake expert confirm or otherwise that the OIW air brakes would not be compatible. There are two sorts of air brake as I understand - graduated release and graduated application. The mainland uses one the IOW the other
