    Sorry but in this thread it lies. Fact that when I say nothing the more aggressive poster have in the past stated rumours, guess work and assumptions as fact is where I'm coming from. Especially when when informed posters try and correct thier error but are met with attitudes of staff are...

    The assumption there is because a train has problem it must be a train fault is wrong. Drivers and infrastructure may cause the train to fail in a safe way (like brakes coming on) yet people on here insist that means the train is a fault. There has been many people on making assumptions into...

    Class 313 GN withdrawal plan

    The 319s don't have local door control so you'd need to spend a fair bit of money to put that, along with guard operation gear, into the 319s.

    Who says they haven't had a word with Siemens. Next year the five line production for Desiro Cities is not going to have any work with the ability to make 10 coaches a week. Yet First has actually signed an order for far more Desiro coaches (1140) than Stagecoach (883 coaches).

    The 3Txx are always commissioning trips. There are regular workings into the bays. Going off what I actually, no. But then I'm seeing actual reasons not the guess work that happens on this forum. And this forum is not entitled to know the workings of every incident. I don't the same people...

    I can't get the phrase "no expense spared" out of my head after seeing that!

    Your still assuming it was related to the train being a fault not something else. Secondly, you expect trains to never fail? You'll always be disappointed with that.

    Pre-rebuild. The wires were going up around the time but not sure if they were live. As for allowed to City Thameslink, the 375/6 (in DC mode) and 376 are allowed as far as Smithfield with the wires on but all the DC only 375 are not permitted north of Blackfriars.

    Don't assume that code is correct. For example being unable to release brakes because of an interlock issue doesn't make the brake faulty. TRUST reasons (what is shown on here) tends to give the end result not the cause, how NR codes incidents.

    No Bombardier made sure that two different set up had the same performance so drivers didn't have to adjust for different sub types when braking which is never clever.

    5x 350/1 were loaned to Southern while the newly arrived 350/2 arrived. This allowed a bunch (I can't remember numbers) of 377/2 to be loaned to FCC to run the KO0 timetable (where some FCC and SE services were linked and ran jointly). In return for this cascade 3x 375 transferred to...
