    Yes, was part of the W&S route learner squad. Seem to recall a comment from Si Bendall elsewhere that all 3 elements ot this route learning exercise involved stock in blue/grey livery.

    10 April 2008 - Bill McTavish doesnt really seem to know what it is these days - it started off with good intentions but now its in danger of becoming a jack of all trades and master of none...

    if an item of stock is allocated a departmental number by the RSL then surely it should be of note on this site !
