2-HAP 4311 (61287) - Electric Railway Museum, Baginton, Coventry.0 viewsWith Kent Coast branding on its Network South East livery, 2-HAP 4311 was on display at the Electric Railway Museum at Baginton on September 13th 2015. The two-car unit was built at Eastleigh in 1958.
This and the other views were taken on an early morning visit to the museum, when the volunteers here kindly let me gain access before the official opening time. If your ever in the area when the museum is open, pay them a visit and give them some support. The collection is unique and well worth a look.
