First time into London from my area for a few weeks yesterday, saw several units I hadn't seen before such as 040, 041 and 052 in the sidings yesterday but both my out and return trips were pairs of 315s - different pairs too. Now that I know any ride on a 315 could be my last on that unit, this doesn't normally bother me during winter, but despite the lack of luggage racks, carrying equipment into town is much easier on 345s with the extra space between the longitudinal seats and the back of the adjacent transverse ones. It's a bit of a faff putting heavy stuff on the elevated racks on 315s - trips like this have made me appreciate that the 345 interior layout is actually superior in more ways than at first you might think. Probably, the year '20198' is mentioned, so that report clearly wasn't proofread too well. Not sure what to make of that report really, things are happening, but the fact that the software release mandatory for the 9-car units to be anywhere close to fit for use still wasn't done is concerning. I'm not sure I'd be satisfied that progress is being made until that issue is cured, even if the delay component is small, you can get away with that for regional services, but absolutely not for intensive metro services, even the ones that exist outside the COS.
