    Alstom buys Bombardier Transportation

    Yes but it’s only the Coradia Polyvalent which is being offered, not the whole Coradia platform. So the new company will still have a regional platform.

    Class 745 Stadler FLIRTs (Intercity Trains)

    The opposite can also happen when a train brakes not far, as it sends back power to the knitting, the current can go in excess, and it can even prevent the older train from leaving a station until the current comes down again.

    Other trains running on the line in the same or opposite direction can have an effect on that too.

    Which company manufactures door push buttons for UK rolling stock?

    the cheap comment was for Domh245. I agree with you (not for the noises though, there’s enough like that already), but surely there’s a way to make a sealed button that clicks or at least moves a bit ?

    Which company manufactures door push buttons for UK rolling stock?

    oh I remember the thinking behind that design now ! If you look closely at that design, it’s completely sealed. The design is meant to make the button completely water-and cleaning liquid-proof. @hexagon789 So maybe not that cheap as it does look like quite a complex design, @Domh245

    Which company manufactures door push buttons for UK rolling stock?

    They are push-buttons but with only a tiny movement, and I believe they are from TSL Escha.

    East Coast Trains Class 803 Updates/Discussion

    I agree with you about the black front. But with that blue I’d prefer silver letters rather than gold.

    Ah yes I didn't pay attention to that, it makes sense.

    Also the forehead/roof of the diesels is rounded while it’s flat on the electrics.

    You’d have to hurry, though. We’re receiving MUs by the shovel now.
