The seating layout and type in this DMSO is unaltered from when the 508s were first introduced, as per the prevailing classes 313/314/315, etc, series.

Saturday 13th December

Friday 12th is not quite the end of our coverage! The following day - the day a railtour with these units was hoped to run - 205 and 207 made an empty stock move back from Tonbridge to Gillingham Depot. In appalling wet weather the pair are seen passing Paddock Wood.
