    A day trip from Nottingham to Southampton starts with 45103 to London St Pancras, a quick visit to Kings Cross, tube to Waterloo and EMU to Southampton and then return by the same path with 45109 from St Pancras. On the journey we saw the following:
    Class 07 (07002/03/06), class 08 (3273, 3304/06, 3400/61, 3514/87, 3773/76/85, 3864/66, 3909/36/96, 08030, 08845), class 09 (4100, 09021), class 20 (8037, 8148), class 25 (5217/82, 7562/72/95, 7612/20/66), class 31 (5590/92/99, 5602/05/08/15/22/25/42/45/47/50/51/54/93), class 33 (6500/24/28/72/89, 33006/18/21/26/29/34, 33114/18), class 37 (6803), class 40 (294), class 45 (31/45/55/84/98, 100/05/32/35/36, 45003, 45103/09/17), class 46 (144/50/91), class 47 (1514/43, 1684, 1708/10/52/59, 1812/35/43/61/70/84, 1974, 47485), class 55 (9001/10/17), class 73 (E6002/07/15/20/22/30/33/43), class 74 (E6106/10, 74001/05).
    Items of interest are the high number of class 31’s (sixteen) at Kings Cross in the two brief visits, class 40, 294 seen at Nottingham and the high number of Eastleigh allocated engines carrying there new numbers compared to any where else.

    A number of the above were photographed later in life and can be found in this collection. As always feedback and comments welcome.
