    Livery lists for LM,XC,EM,NX

    Any idea how they will go about treating 377163 and 164? Full repaint or an interim scheme perhaps?

    395s WiFi fitment

    Even if it is, I wouldn't hold your breath. I've never been able to access decent wifi when fitted to other stock. :(

    Southeastern Refurbished Class 375

    Recently refurbished 375908 was a revelation this evening. No screeching seat back tables! Could it be the case that Bombardier have finally found a solution to this seemingly impossible problem? :shock::idea:

    Southeastern Refurbished Class 375

    Then those responsible for the refurbs at Bombardier/Southeastern should be asked to up their game in terms of quality control! :p

    Southeastern Refurbished Class 375

    And likewise some of the now downgraded first class areas on the 375/8s still retain first class headrests. It might be because the 375/8s have hand holds on the headrests themselves but either way it's poor execution and/or quality control on the part of Southeastern. On a connected note I'm...

    16 Coach EMU?

    A 23 car 375 has run before as this Youtube video shows. Although this was of course in exceptional circumstances and not in public service. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jta4c9FMmCA

    Class 465 accessibility improvements

    Correct, but those are the refreshed 465/9s which we've already established are in much better condition. The 465/0/1/2s referred to are truly grubby inside which doesn't show very well in the photo.

    Electrostar GTR cascade

    Perhaps any day other than a warm summer one, when an air-conditioned journey home is very much appreciated.

    Southeastern Refurbished Class 375

    I was on 375909 this morning and can confirm that the screeching seat back tables is a feature that has been fully retained by Southeastern. :roll:

    Electrostar GTR cascade

    Do 377/1s have the slightly odd "extra" luggage space (instead of two seats) that is a feature on some Southern 377s? And if so, will it be removed and replaced with seating? I can appreciate that on services to Gatwick this feature might be useful, but think less so on the SE routes.

    Thameslink 377 to Sevenoaks

    I noticed a Class 377 pulling into Sevenoaks this evening operating the Thameslink service. This is the first time I have seen this stock used on this part of the Thameslink network, as it's always been 319s to date as far I am aware. I'm pretty fond of the 319s but I would imagine in the recent...

    London Bridge reconstruction works

    I salute your approach sir (although I cannot agree that every standing at the back of the platform is either workable or remotely practical - and this particular problem didn't exist a month ago as the new platforms were yet to be opened). But let's not fall out - the point I was trying to...

    Glib to say the least. Then again perhaps you've never tried to use London Bridge station when it's busy.

    London Bridge reconstruction works

    Here's a pic taken on an afternoon last week, just before the peak period. The narrowness of the platform is pretty evident. As mentioned in my previous post, I really wouldn't feel comfortable with people trying to pass behind me in a hurry at a busy time.

    London Bridge reconstruction works

    It was interesting looking out from my train home at how very narrow most parts of the platforms are. The problem is that whilst the platforms are adequately wide overall, a huge part of the width is taken up with the void for the escalator/stairway space. This leaves much narrower usable...
