    Class 484 replacing class 483 on the island line: progress updates

    Disabled Passenger Over-Carried

    Class 442s - Now at the end of the road and to be withdrawn permanently

    They’ll rise but not by nearly as much as you think. Most of the commuters have worked from hoe for over a year and love the flexibility and better work/life balance it can offer. They won’t want to be forced back into the office full time.
