BRCW Type 3 number 6500, which later became 33001, at Southampton with a down freight. The CCTs in the bay and the BRUTES on the platform are all now consigned to history.

I seem to remember our two lads getting told off for playing inside some brutes on Weston-super-Mare station back in the early eighties. They were a bit tempting.
I visited Southampton quite a lot in the 1990s, when our grandson lived there. By then, the parcel traffic was going by road and it was all passenger EMUs, apart from the occasional Alphaline diesel on the Cardiff to Portsmouth harbour service and of course those lengthy container trains out of Southampton Docks.

I recall that the BRUTES sometimes had a habit of wandering off, and falling off the edge of the platform, if the brakes weren't properly secured and the wind caught them.
