most of the central south london work , out of victoria and london bridge and gatwick to bedford on the thameslink route, probably more than that i would imagine
Maangement are not qualified to operate trains any more so the fear of strikes has gone through the roof.
Edinburgh - Bathgate is probably the only one handed over to DOO since privatisation. The other lines in Scotland - Larkhall and Bathgate - Airdrie were both new lines.
Someone can correct me and add London Overground to the list, I am not sure if it happened or not.
As for other DOO most of the former network south east area is. SWT is the exception they even had the monitors installed. As you get further out on South Eastern the gaurds return.
Oh yes they are. those who manage the competence of SC staff must be vocationally competent and be trained and assessed so to be
... Yes, but as I understand it you used to be able to have large numbers of staff trained to be drivers or guards banked in posistions where they would not have to do the job normally who could be tapped if need be.
Not just the immediate managers of the staff.
After the 313s were converted to DOO, they still required guards for the Moorgate-Finsbury Park section. I remember short-notice diversions to Kings Cross were regular due to 'unavailability of a guard'.GN suburban became DOO sometime around 1987-88 I think - when the 317s replaced the slam door 312s (the 317s having come from the reopened Thameslink route which was now operated by the dual voltage 319s)
possibly 332/360 Paddington to Heathrow
Regarding these, drivers are in control of operating the doors. On the 360s drivers do this unaided between Ealing Broadway and Hayes & Harlington. On 332s and 360s at Paddington and Heathrow stations the driver closes the doors on the say-so of the dispatcher. Also all trains entering the tunnels at Heathrow have to have a second member of staff on the train for evacuation purposes. So is this really DOO as was originally intended?
