Ok – Back on timetable with this entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge 🙂

Places can be handy for this sort of challenge, so lets start with Mitcham Junction…

…A photo I took back in 1987. The station has changed a bit since then with the introduction of the Croydon Tramlink, so I really must visit to get an up to date photo 🙂

Buildings are useful too. This is the headquarters of the International Maritime Organisation…

…It is located on Albert Embankment, London.

Another London location, Commercial Street…

…It passes outside the City of London to the east connecting Shoreditch to Whitechapel via Spitalfields and was an important area for industry.

Finally, here’s a Chiltern Queens coach. An AEC Reliance that entered service with Frames in 1963…

…The bodywork is an example of the Duple Commodore, a model that was only produced in 1963/4, so a very rare vehicle. It was still in daily use in 1980 when I took this photo 🙂

The effect of the new football season is kicking in – I’m going to have to adjust my time management 😉 Here is my entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and I have chosen a couple of options.

Lets start with Pink and conveniently our first match of this season was at home against Margate, whose away kit features a pink shirt…

Black & White with lines??? How about this Mercedes-Benz grill?..

Or this Berry’s coach with its swirly lines in white and grey?..

Finally, and a late addition. A Jersey Tiger for lines and close-up 🙂

Found that on my walk this morning. Hopefully I will be back on time by the end of this week and able to complete next week’s challenge 🙂

Yesterday morning I walked down to the station with Epi and then did a little bit of photography for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge on my way back home.

On one of the side streets I found this sign…

…Nice of them to tell us – just wish all Burglars were so thoughtful 😉 The sign might be less open to mis-interpretation had it started with the ‘Anti-‘ prefix.

Local company Southgate & Finchley Coaches were positioning from their depot ready for the morning school runs, seen here on the High Road in East Finchley…

…That sun was really bright! The coach is a Volvo B12B with Plaxton Panther body.

Last week, on Tuesday, I spent some time on Stratford station, so here’s a couple of train shots showing the yellow ends to close off my entry for this week…

…Class 379 electric unit depositing passengers before making the short return trip back to Meridian Water. And here’s a pair of Class 66 locomotives on an intermodal service from London Gateway to Leeds…

…The second loco is not working – known as Dead in Train (DiT) and is either being relocated for operational reasons or is being taken for some TLC.
