    This and its 3 sisters were on their way from Barrow Hill (via Tonbridge) to the former Eastleigh works where they are currently stored awaiting their call to duty....?

    have these vehicles had their cab ends painted black making their driving cabs redundant and also do they still have any traction equipment fitted

    29 December 2007 - Simon Bendall

    Driving cabs have been reactivated on all four, they will operate as two sets in push/pull mode with 73212 and 73213 in between.

    One of the de-icer cars, and I suspect that it is 68504, has been repainted at Eastleigh to either Arlington or Southern Region green. The reasons for this are unknown.

    It is 68501 in Arlington Green, preparing for a new life as a translator. One of the other two will follow, with the remaining vehicle probably scrapped.

  • 7 July 2018 - Simon Bendall

    68504 is the other, 68505 to be kept in reserve.
