    Well I'd certainly be happy with that as 35018 is the only working Bulleid that I haven't seen in action. Last time I saw it, it was languishing in the "headshunt of doom" on the Mid-Hants. Long time ago!

  7. green five liked The Gricing Owl's post in the thread Kent & East Sussex Railway.

    It's from when we worked in almost adjacent offices in the SR HQ at Waterloo station - I got the nickname from Don and or others in the office so all knew which of us was being mentioned etc - based on Wedgewood Benn who was an MP at the time!

    Probably more to do with the fact that all TOCs will be operating a Plan B so that trains and crews are in the right place. A 'one-off' charter is easier to manage.
