Local gen snippets…

·         Southern 377’7’s appear to be operating all diagrams now, 377206 was the last recorded 4 car on 010814.

·         Leighton station’s bulky new footbridge now has all it spans, lift towers  and stairs but completion could be a while away

·         LM’s new 350’3’s to cover for Bromsgrove electrification and increased traffic have been seen at Euston on emcars recently. 350374 is currently loaned to TP and is used on Edinburgh-Manchester services  

·         Blockades are here again all weekends in August.. Nothing South of Hemel except buses

·         Much anniversary action at Chinnor, midweek and weekends Link
