Refurbished 458 arrives at Bournemouth
The first refurbished and reduced formation class 458 was returned south yesterday, (18th July 2023) arriving on Southern territory as 14:35 Wembley Yard – Bournemouth Depot. After a delay at Woking, it passed Horseshoe Bridge, St Denys 30 minutes late at 18:04. There was then a delay of about 4 hours at Southampton, meaning Bournemouth was not reached until 23;19, some 267 minutes late.
The unit returned was 458417, the former 458517. The train from Wembley was topped and tailed by 56081 and 69008.
