66115 - Southampton Eastern Docks.0 viewsAny journey to the Isle of Wight using Red Funnel Ferries from Southampton to East Cowes involves running alongside the Eastern Docks and its Car Terminal and Cruise Liner Berths. On Friday 27th June at 13.15, 66115 crawls along the dockside have brought another load of new Range Rovers from Halewood on Merseyside for export. Its precious cargo will be destined to join (temporarily) the massed ranks in the car park behind the 66. There is quite a lot of expensive kit is this view, including that boat!

The 313s were built at York in 1976/77 and were the first second generation EMUs based on the PEP prototypes that were trialled on the Southern Region in the early 1970s.
