The last day of my first 7 day SR railrover, And in a change from timing the large Bulleid pacifics at speed, I spent the morning and early afternoon enjoying the company of the diminutive A1X 0-6-0 tank locos as they worked the Hayling Island Branch from Havant. With thanks to Don Benn for information on the operations on that branch line.
