The North Berwicks have been using 380s for a while now.

True, I think I just missed one at Kingsknowe as I was driving down that way the other day. But for the most part, they are out West at the moment.

Hopefully once the Falkirk High line is Electrified we'll be seeing 380s on that route.

121 :p

And I know I'm going to get lambasted for this - I always do! - but...



Urgh <(

I experienced my 1st 323 today, and I agree with you that they are ghastly things, no better than the grotty GA 321/3s.

Steam: Gresley V2s
Diesel: Deltics!
Electric: Class 87
DMU: 156. Or the Blue Pullman units and 124s if we go back in time a bit. It's a crying shame that examples of neither were preserved.
EMU: 323

The Northern 323s are a good deal ropier than the London Midland examples. Other than for an unfortunate lack of TLC, I think they're fabulous trains!

I have never been on an LM 323 or a refurbished Northern one, so maybe I was just unlucky with the one I got. :P

If I had to pick Steam, I would say the Standard 4. ELR-based 76079 is a bit of a truncheon!
