When I wrote my On Borrowed Time post about the South Western Railway Class 455’s back in early February, I noted that there seemed to be no plans to replace the Southern 455’s. It seems that has changed and the rumour mill is now suggesting that they will be phased out in May this year. Southern think that their Class 377 fleet will be able to take up the slack. If that proves to be the case, then a shot of three class 455’s together at East Croydon will indeed soon be history!

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 🙂
