The class 58s probably suffered the most from the introduction of class 66s, as the whole fleet was withdrawn from BR by 2002.

At first I thought this was a rare service but now I've looked, it apparently aint, so here's the result of a limited stop service between Plymouth and Newquay with a class 802, which is terrible compared to the refurbed 43s.

Been train spotting a few times in France over the past week (spoiler so I don't clog up the thread)

I too have been looking at trains in France, but I'm back now. Open the spoilers to view the images of trains in Surgères.

These two shots are at Sotteville-les-Rouen's 'Train Graveyard', where SNCF puts the trains and rolling stock it doesn't need. Most of it is perfectly useable.

I know I'm late, but those are some great pics! :D
I especially like the purple SNCF BB22200. 😛

Nice Hitachi!
I've seen both IRL, and I can say I like both the 800s and the 43.
Never ridden either though, so I can't say how comfortable they both are.

Thanks, those are my favourite locos and they go from Purple to Blue

While I am now home in England, I did two (short) "spotting sessions" near Clonas-Sur-Vareze before I went

This morning I discovered how much better a ScotRail 158 is compared to a Thameslink 700 in terms of looks and comfort

Today an East Rail Line train was derailed in Hong Kong after its departure from Hung Hom Station. Passengers were only lightly injured.
