On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Week 1 – Get Outside

On Monday I went out for my first trainspotting day of 2020. Here’s a few electric units photographed on that day out. 378224 arriving at Highbury & Islington during the late morning rush…

I spent some time at Stratford before travelling over to London Bridge station. I think this is the first time I’ve actually gone to London Bridge for some spotting in nearly 30 years! Here’s 375910 wearing Southeastern Railway’s Blue livery…

Here are two Networker units, 465022 and 465242, with some detail differences between them…

And finally, on a Thameslink service we have 700019…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letters or Numbers

Here’s some letters and a symbol…

Letters and Numbers are often combined in London for bus routes in a certain area. This E7, for example, is a route in the Ealing area…..Just across the corner from West Ealing station. Bus routes in Harrow and Hounslow areas tend to be allocated H numbers. U for Uxbridge, W for Wood Green. It all makes sense doesn’t it? Well, not entirely because in Golders Green we will find the H2 and H3 which don’t go anywhere near Harrow or Hounslow……Remnant’s of an era of local hail and ride ‘Hoppa’ services – this one’s in Finchley. And as for the C routes……This C3 might be going to Clapham Junction as it passes through Chelsea, but other C routes go to Parliament Hill Fields, Archway, Victoria and Canada Water – perhaps it just means they serve central London along with a lot of purely ‘numbered’ routes. Confusing isn’t it 😉
