Hi

Does anyone have any info on the routes the 350s will run etc, I am planning my WCML visit for the summer (6 weeks off) and was wondering where the best place to see these would be.

I had crewe in mind, will they pass through there?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated

Thanks

Jordy

Looks like Northampton-Birmingham to start with, but by Summer they may well reach Crewe.

Haven't you seen that before?

It's 1288gaje's unique streamlining effect. It looks especially good on the 313s ;)

go on a Electrostar between Harrow & Wealdstone to Kenny O and you will see that it's has to break heavily (and make a scary whining noise :cry: )

350's will be a good bet at Rugby as well, however I have been told that due to problems at Queens Park with Platform clearences the 350's are not yet cleared between Watford and Euston.

Well yet another problem with so called "newer, better trains" It's ironic there marketiting them as "Needed desperatley to improve trains on xxxxx route" when there just surplus Desiros from SWT. If SWT wouldn't of over ordered would NR of invested in the said routes with 'improvements'?

I'd think not. Ah the joys of the heavy subsidised south of current railways. So subsidised there paying for trains as far north as Liverpool ;)
