It's a few years now since the Starcross Pumping house was a museum. Managed a visit there once, many moons ago.

Where they ever installed? like the ones into Bristol TM..
Bristol and Oxford, main points for semi fast electric service I would have thought, did use the 387 units on my recent trip, major improvement on a 16x. Missed chance there. or other words to that effect.
All the brand new OLE masts and bases have been put up on a network rail disposal list I subcribe to. such a waste.
