I didn’t really want to own up to this but — I remember them replacing Bulleid Pacifics (!) — I mean, come on — and hanging around being totally reliable but extraordinarily boring (and just about the only locomotives to be seen locally) for the next 20 years. I reserve the right to be disappointed.
Ah, OK, fair enough! I'm a little younger, so my memory's sort of the opposite. I travelled to Salisbury from Waterloo a fair bit in my mid-teens, when the trains were hauled by 50s (which I rather liked, and still do), and later 47s. The 33s, which the bigger diesels had displaced, would occasionally be required to stand-in on their old role, which gave them the air of the plucky underdog. Well, to me, anyway...

That looks Great! Gives me inspiration to do some more Gauge one Compartment Coaches with all the panelling. Which does mean some Isle of Wight stock (now that will be good to see).
