    Class 345 progress

    Worse than I thought. I was on 14:13 from Pad and noticed that there were 3 360s at OOC as we passed.

    Class 345 progress

    Isn't the 6tph to T5 dependent on there being 4tph to T4? As there are now no trains going to T4, can the number of tph to T5 be raised? As a LHR worker, currently non-worker, I will miss the comfortable cl360s.

    Great Western Electrification Progress

    Where the electrification of the lines and branches has been postponed, has the design work been completed and could work start straight away if a decision to proceed was given? How long would it actually take to electrify the Windsor branch? At the moment there must be a lot of trained/skilled...

    Crossrail opening delayed until sometime in 2021

    Can I suggest you read the Class 345 thread regarding testing to Heathrow and by the way there are not platform doors at Heathrow stations.

    Class 345 progress

    The evening shuttles between Hayes and Harlington Loop and Terminal 5 continue. Is this testing or training for the TFL drivers? As a Heathrow worker, I use the TFL service to and from Ealing Broadway so I look forward to the service becoming 4tph. The only thing I do not look forward to are...

    Class 345 progress

    For my sins I monitored Sunday’s testing on Open Train Times. At the same time it was a good opportunity to check for faults in the OTT Paddington map regarding the Crossrail part of the map; in which case I would report to OTT. In previous Sunday testing, 2/3 units had shuttled between the...

    No different from previous Sundays. The only services not operating are the Paddington to Hayes and Harlington shuttles, all other services are operating as normal.

    New semaphore signals on the Dudding Hill Line

    Great cab ride videos. How long will it be before we can see a cab ride video of Acton to Wembley from a class 90/92? Most probably never!

    Class 345 progress

    Most evenings nowadays class 345s are shuttling between Hayes and Harlington loop and Terminal 5 while the Hex and TFL Rail services are operating, the TPWS/ETCS transition must be working satisfactory. How long will it be before a cl345 replaces a cl360?

    Class 345 progress

    For the last two Sundays, a unit has been shuttling to and fro between the Crossrail Depot Line at Ladbroke Grove and the Royal Oak portal. I guess they are testing the transition between CBTC and TPWS. On Open Train Times, berths on the adjacent lines 5 and 6 are showing SPZ (Signalling...

    And if you installed longitudinal seating you could do away with windows altogether!!

    Great Western Railway Heathrow Express Class 387 Refittment and Service Updates

    And if BAA/HAL had not funded and built the Heathrow branch, would anyone else have? Would Crossrail actually have been built, since in the 2000s it was almost cancelled and going to Heathrow was one of its positives?

    Train hits power line brought down by light aircraft at Abergavenny

    When I was learning to fly at White Waltham (Maidenhead), you approached one of the runways over the railway; of course you now have the OHLE to worry about.

    Class 710 LO

    They should sit in the stock while they carry out their assessment, perhaps they would then carry it out quicker.

    Rail Freight Depot at Radlett, Hertfordshire

    In the 1960s, I remember watching Victor bombers taking off from the site when it was Handley Page airfield.

    Class 345 progress

    It is not unusual for 335031/2 to be at Westbourne Park, first reported in posts #2579/80 on 7/12/18. Are these the only units currently being used in the core?

    Great Western Railway Heathrow Express Class 387 Refittment and Service Updates

    I assume you haven't been outside on the north side of the station by the canal. I also suggest if you want a taxi, the best place to go is to the rank outside the Hilton at the top of the ramp on Praed Street
