37425 is in position at Eastleigh coupled to HOBCS2, or part thereof, and is to work 06:46 Eastleigh East Yard - Oxford - Long Marston on Monday morning, 2nd August:


I could see:

Someone has suggested it won't run in this path but he didn't say what that was based on... someone else said it may go via Swindon.

Yes, I have now read elsewhere that there is another path, which includes a runaround at Worcester, which may be necessary for a proper entrance into Honeybourne - this is it:


Some of my own pictures, showing the length of the HOBCS2 formation, where I count 10 Hopper / Conveyor wagons:

Currently at least five MFS wagons at Southampton docks - presumably about to be exported. Anyone any info please?

Probably members of the batch (that went in two rakes) that went to Long Marston recently from Eastleigh - I've heard that batch is off to America.
