Originally on the calendar to go last weekend but I believe they are a few weeks behind schedule. 25+26 as mentioned above is next on the list to go.
Thanks to all. Don't know how many SWR have left, but ironically I've been taken off part of a job tomorrow to cover part of a 707 duty as they are short of 707 drivers.

707002 worked Windsor services yesterday (Friday 17th) so I think it’s safe to say it remains with SWR for now

Quite a lot of 707 workings apparently have been stripped out of the LTP diagrams in favour of 455 / 458, including an evening Shepperton - which means there will be 458s running down there for the first time in a while.

Another irony… I'd never worked a 458 down the Sheppy road till last week, when I did it on two consecutive days… Finding PIS codes for it is a bitch though.
They were morning turns which used to be a 707 stronghold.

Schedules below on RealTimeTrains.
Were these 25 & 26 as expected?

Talking of odd 458 workings, Monday evening saw two round trips operated by a 10.458

Press run reportedly in for Sevenoaks station on the 24th.
A couple of paths have appeared in the system for the 24th - probably related to this.

1Z21 1144 London Cannon Street to Sevenoaks https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/service/gb-nr:J32921/2021-09-24/detailed
1Z23 1224 Sevenoaks to London Cannon Street https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/service/gb-nr:J32920/2021-09-24/detailed

Looks like the great and good are being spared the tedium of "all stations to Hither Green then fast to London Bridge"!

So now their enhanced publicity of a new microfleet that not every SE user will experience has entered cringe territory.
If you've seen the state of most of their rolling stock anything halfway decent is newsworthy...

707028 (?) is parked outside Wimbledon TCD unbranded. I gather this will be one of the next to move east?
