My desktop this month is a photo of London Underground C-Stock trains at Farringdon Station. Introduced in 1970, they provided services on the Circle and Hamersmith & City lines. They had a mid-life refurbishment beginning in 1989 which saw the original brushed aluminium finish replaced by the livery seen in this image which was taken in 2010. Withdrawal of the class began in 2012 and continued as replacement S-Stock arrived from the manufacturers. The last C-Stock service ran in June 2014.

I never know if these count as a dark red – the first is an EWS liveried locomotive and it’s definitely a ‘dull’ red…

…But I’m pretty sure LMS / British Railways Maroon (sometimes called Crimson Lake) counts as Dark’ when it comes to reds…

…And then there’s our Wingate & Finchley away kit from a couple of years ago…

…I just wish I had some shots of the Chrysanthemums I used to grow with the red and gold petals – maybe something to look forward to as I replant the garden… 🙂

A video today of a drive in my DAF XF106.460, ‘Azyet’, pictured here at the end of a previous delivery…

…It’s a short night run, so the traffic on the roads is light. However, the single carriageway road between Kiel and Travemunde has some twists and turns so we need to pay attention 😉 Video is 17min’s in length…
