    This vehicle and its sister, 975978, are currently at Eastleigh for overhaul with Arlington. They are expected to be released in mid December and will be allocated to the Doncaster-Slade Green 465 flow operated by GBRf

    Apparently these two refurbished barrier coaches were noted at Eastleigh with cast nameplates attached! They were covered in tape / card so no clue as to what they are going to receive yet - any more info welcome!

    I have been told the following:

    "975974 and 975978 went on lease with GBRf as on 27th May

    Official handover was at Eastleigh Works

    975974 has been named Paschar


    975978 has been named Perpetiel

    Paschar is the angel of vision

    Perpetiel is the angel of success

    There first run will be a shake down with a 508, date not yet known but likely to be quite soon

    Route TBA but likely to involve a run round at either Woking or Basingstoke

    Once trial run is complete the vehicles will be used on the existing 465/466 flow from Wabtec/Doncaster to Slade Green on Friday evenings, and return move on Saturday. This is a once every three weeks flow."

    It is hoped that 975974 and 975978 will depart Eastleigh on 17th June for a trial run. Destination is likely to be Basingstoke. A 508 EMU will be utilised as load.

    975974 and 975978 northbound through East Croydon last Wednesday evening behind 66727 with Coastway unit #14. Working from Brighton to Wolverton Works. I noted the names as Poacher and Perpetual. Have these had their names "modified" or did I just see the obvious and not the real names?
