Outside.  Wink
Thats why I never noticed them then - I'm normally too busy reading a book or playing with my phone!

Ditched former sig - now I need to think of something amusing - brain hurts -I'll steal from the master himself - Einstein:

My personal favourite is '4LAV' a Four Car Lavatory Unit (Lavatory in one car) - that's the description.  Anyone seen one?!

Know them well from my time at Essex House Croydon (Central Divsion HQ Now demolished!).

Used to work the Brighton semi fasts. Coming down from Claydon tunnel the seat went one way the racks went another and the slam doors rattled in sympathy. I believe they known as "Thunderjugs" or something  similar.

Like all Southern units they were built to last and did over 30 years up and down the Brighton line, how many million miles they did I don't know.
