      Many thanks for the compliment - and it’s very much returned as railwaymen can be thin on the ground on here!
      The railway is so siloed, so It’s great to get some insight from people who have been there and done it from a different angle.

      Hi, I just wanted to ask about hash !
      I preferred a pint so have no experience of buying it then, can you remember how much you got and what the price was ?!!!
      Strange question to ask on a forum about Railways but there you go.
      Regards. Debbie

      I noted your post on a thread about the future of the Moorgate line and comments about how tired this line is. I use this line and completely agree. You mention that refurbishment of class 313s is more likely than replacement and this concerns me. I am astonished that class 313s are still in operation on commuter route in a global metropolis, they are so tired and noisy. Not only do I have to travel on them but I live backing onto a siding at Hertford North and have slept little in the past 7 years due to the stabling of 313s close to my home.
      I was led to believe by FCC and grimly hanging onto the hope that they would be refreshed when the franchise is renewed soon, but it sounds like you are a person in the know and have information to contrary.
      Could the 313s really be in operation for 50-60 years? If you have any concrete information that this is the case, then I would appreciate being party to it as I will consider needing to relocating my family this year.

      thanks in advance
