Hi all, I was looking for a thread to ask a few questions on the stock First are going to use for their new Open Access Operator seemingly named East Coast Trains. Apologies if there already is one, if so, please point me to it. The stock will be essentially 5-car 801s with the gen set removed. (please refrain from complaint on first Iron Board seating...) My main question was, given that they have only ordered 5 sets, which would imply they are not planning on any doubled up service, why they haven't just made the trains have 10? or even 11 or 12 carriages? Lower purchase/leasing cost this way? lower risk? Allows future extension of trains to suit demand?
