2H 1125 on the Watercress Line, 23rd April 2016

2H 1125 (60124 + 60824 to Lots 30540 and 30541) was originally delivered from Eastleigh as a 3H unit in December 1959, Renumbered 205025 in October 1986, this "Thumper" was reconfigured as a 2H in 1998, and eventually withdrawn in February 2004, after which it delivered itself into preservation in May that year,

I first noted 1125 on 3rd August 1982, a month before taking up employment in Hampshire.

At Alresford before the first train of the day.

Resting for 10 minutes at Medstead.

Arriving at Ropley.
