Last Barking to Gospel Oak 172 Friday night.
Sorry, im a bit behind
Does this mean that the 710s will enter service after tonight?
No, it means the service will reduce to half hourly, using only 3 units, as announced by TfL just over a week ago, it’s all linked in the 710 thread:
Has any crew training started yet on the ex LO 172's ready for their new duties here in the midlands starting in May. I have seen sets stabled on Tyseley but they don't seem to move much.
There have been training runs from Tyseley to Stratford this week, not sure when the next will be.
Obviously to us natives or former natives of the West Midlands region, that is Stratford upon Avon that is being referred to and not Stratford in East London.
It would be rather far and arduous to do that long a training run, but I think the clarification is probably useful, since neither people in London nor the West Midlands are automatically likely to clarify which Stratford they mean!
To be pedantic, there is only one Stratford and that's in London - Stratford Upon Avon sounds completely different pronouncing it unless you're lazy and miss off the Upon Avon part.
Not like Gillingham in Dorset/Kent, Rainham in London ie Essex/Kent etc....
Will be happening all the way through to May at least. You've then got to factor in possible 1/2 day conversions for those depots that sign the /2's and /3's.
Sure has started. Not sure when the rest of the ex-LO units will move up.
On an unrelated point, anyone heard when the 153's will leave WMT?
How many of the 172s have arrived into the West Midlands so far?
Where are these going?
5 so far. 3 to join.
EMT was the last anyone heard. All gone quiet.
5 at Tyseley?
Not sure. 5 already transferred. LO just released last 3 to join yesterday. 15th March.
I know two have moved to Tyseley and are in use for training. A further three moved to Ilford for modification but did they ever leave? There are paths in the system to move the last three to Ilford on Monday. A win for the West Midlands but a mess for GOBLIN.
