NSE emerges

Although I've visited Guildford many times I've only had an hour or two at the station once! Back in 1986 (these were all taken on 20.8.1986) there was a good variety of trains (but nothing loco hauled during my visit). Western Region DMUs were working the Reading to Tonbridge services, which was a fascinating route back then, and still something of a backwater. Slam door stock were the order of the day there, but the real reason this day was memorable was that during my stay I saw the NSE red, white and blue livery for the first time. It wasn't as classy as the Jaffa Cake livery but looked good on 7349 which looked like it had just been outshopped!
