A more unusual one for me: a picture of a train!

This is 150127 seen today (14 February 2017) at Shirehampton. The First Great Western livery is pretty standard, except for the National Express-era ScotRail logo at the top of the centre cab window.

Seen today, but no photo unfortunately:

Liskeard signal box still has a Regional Railways name board.

Surprised no-one has mentioned the Moorgate branch; the underground stations, especially Essex Road, are in an NSE time-warp.

Essex Road still has NSE names on the tunnel wall, whereas these were replaced with WAGN purple ones at Moorgate, Old Street and H&I, but on the platform side, all four stations still have NSE signs and the decorative tiling installed at the same time!

Red Star and, slightly hidden, Network SouthEast branding on Littlehampton station totem, seen in late May 2018.
