As SE are now receiving more of these, will more drivers be doing a conversion course for them, or is that not necessary?

Im guessing that the only difference between these and 375s is the mitrac and the doo cameras which wont be needed. A simple paper brief will be enough.

I did understand that a separate traction course was necessary previously (presumably quite a short one for those who already sign 375s!). Has that been changed?

Definitely! And it’s good to see plenty of benefits on the Greenwich line as well!

A separate traction conversion course is definitely needed.

Most drivers already sign them after a widespread conversion course ran last year.

Yesterday PM's 1F93 and this AM's 1F93 were both sub'd with Networkers. Are the 377s that normally run this over at Selhurt for some work or something?

There’s currently a lack of serviceable units. From Thursday the available fleet increases to 10 as 377509/521 return from modifications at Ramsgate

There are currently 7 units in use a day with only 8 units in total. WiFi mods are ongoing at Selhurst

Two 377/1s will join the Southeastern Fleet on top of 23x 377/5. Should be 377163 & 164

Had the increase from 16 - 23 been confirmed already then? I may have missed it as it is in so many discussions...
