67908, Brush Loughborough, 04-01-2013
Built for Gatwick Express services, the class 460 fell out of favour as the concept of dedicated trainsets designed for airport traffic was lost in the need to increase capacity. Replaced by cascaded 442s, many cars were rebuilt and integrated into class 458 sets working out of Waterloo, hence the presence of several cars here at Brush. The driving luggage car of 460008 awaites its fate.
Last time I took photos here, the yard was full of class 60s as Brush struggled to commission the class into service!
