Whilst searching Flickr. I found some rare footage of 4SUB 4732 with 2BIL 2090 being hauled from a open day at Norwich Crown Point. 73118 is still around today, preserved at the Barry Tourist Railway

The class 73 was towing the 2 preserved EMUs to Norwich for Crown Point open day. It failed at Colchester and had to be towed so I was pretty lucky to get this shot.

A belated post. Today we attended Thanet Parkway station official opening where the station was officially opened by Huw Merriman. We also met senior people within the rail industry and local councilors etc to promote 4SUB 4732 and that it is based in the local area.

40 years ago today the last 4-SUB units were withdrawn from traffic at Selhurst depot. Their days of faithful service was over, all, except 4732 of course, would eventually make their way to a date with the scrap dealer.

Pictured a few months earlier at Clapham Junction on July 7th 1983, 4-SUB 4278 passes 455 unit 5833, the 455s have now also disappeared from the former Central Division lines (including 5833) but others remain in traffic on the South Western Railway routes.
