Well that was pretty impressive this morning. The number of old farts twitching away with their cameras on platform 2, constantly ignoring the desperate pleas of Southern rail staff to ask them to step away from the edge of the platform. The amount of barging and shoving to get a good photographic spot was amusing, and people say young people are bad mannered.
The train itself was impressively long as well, not seen that many carriages being pulled before (although it was cheating with a diesel engine at the back)
It's back about 11pm this evening apparently if you want another [night time] shot

Do I detect a note of grumpiness there, Old Mayor? It was advertised on this forum a few months back.

I heard it building up the head of steam to roll out of Lewes about 11:20pm - a night shot would have been nice but so was my sofa

Thanks, David 2. You weren't bothered by the traffic or people walking right past front window? more
