Old Gatwick Express at Clapham Common.

On 25 March 2007, Hassard Stacpoole and I were photographing the evolving British railway scene in the London area. Among our subjects for the day were the specially styled Gatwick Express class 460 Juniper train sets, such as this one, and Eurostar trains working via 3rd rail and serving London Waterloo International.

While the core of old Gatwick trains still exist, the distinctive styling was removed.

We knew then that both services would eventually change. The Gatwicks  services were re-equipped while the Eurostar was routed into St. Pancras.
