10th October 2010. A chance glimpse over the parapet of the road bridge south of Weybridge station resulted in this photograph of MPV number DR 98975 heading another MPV as they leave the Down Slow line through the station platform and take the branch line towards Virginia Water.. The train made a loud hissing noise, so is presumed to have been on rail head treatment duties.
 
It was subsequently discovered that the trailing MPV was number DR 98925 and that the working was 3S82 from Effingham Junction to Clapham Junction and back to Effingham Junction.
