End of Connex Livery

With 508207 departing for overhaul at Doncaster on February 8th the livery of the former Connex company has disappeared from the former Southern Region. No tears were shed by passengers, nor many by staff, by the demise of the Connex South Eastern operation and the disapperance of the none too distinguished livery finally draws the line under an unsatisfactory period.

Photographer Colin Price says he only took the photograph because it was a nice wintery sunny day and was not expecting the unit to go to overhaul yet, thus was fortuitous to catch the livery in its final week.
