Down Fast

444.015 and 444.003 rattled through Eastleigh with 1W19, the 09:35 Waterloo Weymouth fast passenger, on 24 September 2016.

Despite stopping at Woking, Winchester, Southampton Airport and Brockenhurst as well as Southampton Central, the train was scheduled to take 1 hour 45 minutes from Waterloo to Weymouth, 15 minutes faster than the steam hauled Bournemouth Belle of 1963, which only stopped at Southampton. the EMU might be faster but I know which one I'd rather photograph.
