    Stations with mandatory assisted dispatch

    There are some stations where dispatch is by the guard and the ready to start signal is given using the bell/ buzzer and dispatch assistance from platform staff is mandatory too.

    E Tickets

    Generally I find it quicker checking E tickets if passengers have taken a screenshot, as sometimes it can take people a while to find the ticket in their app. The Trainline app is usually OK but some other apps can be slower.

    December 2022 Timetable Changes

    The consultation was on the December 2022 timetable which would see some increases to the service currently running, but I don't think any results of the consultation have been published yet.

    Class 701 'Aventra' trains for South Western Railway

    I don't it's been confirmed publicly, but it is definitely the case. Only for a time limited period though, at least for now anyway.

    Why can't some ECS movements be opened to the public?

    That particular ECS from Reading to Ascot has indeed run in service in previous timetables.

    Class 701 'Aventra' trains for South Western Railway

    ASLEF certainly don't consider the units to be in a state where training can start.
