1707 Southampton 2 December 1998

Class 421 4-CIG 1707 approaches Southampton on 2 December 1998 with the 09:50 Bournemouth to Victoria service. Unlike the majority of trains in the area that were operated by South West Trains, and who's London terminus was Waterloo, this one was operated by Connex South Central, and travelled the long way round to Victoria, via Chichester and Worthing. To the casual observer at the time there wasn't much difference, as many units still retained the obsolete Network SouthEast livery, as here.
