When I moved to London from Wales in 1998 whenever I had spare time I'd get a travel card and venture into the city.

I would often visit many of the large station but one I didn't visit too many times was London Bridge, I always found it an awkward station to photograph but visiting there in rush hour was my real introduction to Thumpers as there was the daily direct service to Uckfield, so If I was out and about in the city it was always worth popping over to see the Thumper.

Heres a few shots of 205009  filing up with passengers waiting for departure

205009 speeds out of the station, probably the only time the Connex livery photographed well

The last time I saw a Thumper at London Bridge was on the 27th November 2004 when the Last Thump tour terminated there.

Heres a couple of shot from that tour but theres an article about on the site just click here

A couple of shots of 205028 under the now removed roof at London Bridge

203032 sticking out from under the roof

205001 reflects in the posters

A couple of long exposure shots of 205028, I didn't have a tripod with me so I had to resort to putting my camera on buns and fixed surfaces to get these shots

205028 enters on a stormy summer evening, as at this time I was still using traditional film I never dated any of my shots but its sometime between 2000 & the end in 2004
