Variety on the Amber Rudd Express
Having been introduced in the December 2014 timetable change, with the evenings getting slightly longer it became possible to get a picture of the Thameslink 377s on the evening "Amber Rudd Express". For the uninitiated, the "Amber Rudd Express" is the nickname for a morning peak fast Hastings to Charing Cross service and early evening peak return that were introduced following a campaign by Amber Rudd MP for better, faster, rail services for her constituency.
(above) On 13th February 2015 377506 and 377507 pass Tonbridge on the 16:20 Charing Cross - Hastings.
(below) By happy coincidence this then provided the opportunity to picture 377507 overtaking 375707 (on the rear of the 16:15 Charing Cross - Hastings) whilst the latter unit was in platform 3 at Tonbridge. What are the chances of seeing two units on adjacent tracks with numbers only different by their middle two digits being transposed ?
