Hi guys, what was your favourite region back in BR days and what was your favourite stock that ran on it. Mine is the southern region, and my favourite stock was the NLL 313's ,as the NSE livery suited them very well, followed by the 33's with the 4TC sets. I also like the slightly mysterious 8VEG's

I personally don't have a favourite region, but favourite stock would be anything from the 90's. I don't have much experience with loco hauled coaches as I was born 1996, so I've only known units, but I would like to see how a 37 + Mk1's compares to a 156 :lol:

Class 156 ..............
2 car unit - seats 163 - max speed 75mph

Class 37 + 3 Mk1 FO + 1 Mk1 BSO ..........
seats 165 - max speed 90mph

I think it would be a close run thing, but the 37 makes a better noise. 8-)

3FO+1BSO - very first-heavy formation!

It has to be the Western Region for me, be it a Thousand on load 14 storming through reading on the red dragon, or a 59 with 50+ stone hoppers crawling up savernake on a mendip jumbo, everything is done on such grand scale. Plus I live alongside the busiest stretch of the region!

It was just to balance out the seating, 2TSO + 1FO + 1BSO would have provided more seats than required. :)

Never had a favourite region - but preferred things back when they were loco hauled. I started to lose interest in the railways when units started to take over.

I particularly liked seeing the Regional Railways loco hauled stuff - particularly with the Regional Railways liveried 37's or 31's on the front (or 37408 'Loch Rannoch' in its large logo livery) or 2x Class 20's on the East Midlands - Skegness services.

Used to like seeing the old loco hauled Network SouthEast liveried MK1's and Mk2s too.

It was always nice seeing the odd Scotrail coach that had found itself into an Intercity Cross Country set through the Midlands too.

Favourite liveries were Regional Railways and NSE on coaches (rather than units) - and a nice, clean, Intercity Swallow livery on a HST looked fantastic.

I grew up with Eastern Region (Deltics, Derby type DMUs and the rest), but I always had a bit of a hankering for the London Midland (those exotic electrics!)

Southern Region, despite coming from Reading, I've found it to be the most fascinating region of the lot, due to the lack of funding they received, they always came up with the most ingenious solutions such as: 4-REPS and 4-TC, the fact the traction motors and under-frames were constantly being re-used and the Gatwick Express.

Southern Region is the best, you can stick your hydraulics, deltics and overhead electrics, southern is best!

Well thank you klambert, being bred just 2 miles from the Southwestern Mainline it's nice to see someone agree with me.

Reading this thread I see the Class 20 workings to Skegness were mentioned & I have just looked up my observations at Boston & Sibsey & here are some workings & see it is twenty years ago now.
1993 10.06 20/118/165 16.06 20/066/138
17.06 20/165/118 18.06 20/165/118
22.06 20/165/118 23.06 20/092/169
29.06 20/032/128/169dead
30.06 20/128/032 02/07 20/066/138
06.07 20/066138 28.07 20/087/132/169/118
03.09 20/128/131

Also on 07.06 47/617 University of Stirling & 09.06 47/368 made a trip down
You can imagine what the sound of the four working the 28.07 from Derby to Skegness sounded like!!!
Was pleased I managed to see it.
