Yeomans photos

Post by MattW » 18:04 Saturday 20th August 2016

Here's some of my current rides!

Volvo/Caetano NatEx spec - we've got a couple of these 60 plate ones, the 12-speed semi-auto box is a little slow to get going but once you're up to speed they pull very very well. This one has an awesome sound when using the exhaust brake too :twisted:

This is one of our more modern versions on Scania chassis. Standard auto box so get off the line sharpish but not as fast on the motorway as the Volvos. Beautiful to drive though.

Ex NatEx coach on some rail replacement :)

Saturday afternoon in the yard......

In London we take our breaks in Abellio London's Battersea depot. Sometimes you get an inspector onboard :lol:

Would you believe this is the Chelsea Embankment at 0930? Nice and quiet on a Sunday ;)

Nice photos Matt will have to keep an eye out for you. Most of our duties not take our breaks in Departures or Greenline. Our first London shift parks up in Abellio stil however as do a few afternoon shifts which get to London around 1600-1830

Our 1630 goes from Bay 3. I was supposed to be on it Saturday however looks like my shift is being changed.

I got the 1430 on Friday from London however that parks in Greenline
