    Just my cup of tea. Wish there were more of these type of tour. Will cost me more too to get to and from Kings Cross! Now showing as "Nearly full!".

    If you want to sample a 313 - plenty still in service. It is a pity to miss the railtour of course but you can still sample the units :)

    Shame about that. The seem to still run the majority of weekends services from recent experiences however.

    It'll be two; it's going into Moorgate and three won't fit there.

    The website linked in the original post says that the Availability for the Adult tickets is FULL. Interesting - have they filled it up already?!

    Apparently they have, filled up in 48 hours I believe (or so?) no surprise at that price. I was on break at work when I found this and was showing 'NEARLY FULL', I knew I was away working a tour in October but couldn't remember when, and didn't think I'd even have time to check so booked it, now just seeing if I can actually turn up (thankfully the week working away is the week before!) if I can't get the day off I don't mind loosing out on £25

    OK - at £25 for a nice trip around on a 313, it's not surprising!

    You could ask them if they have a waiting list in case anyone already booked drops out, but it would, I'm afraid, be very likely they've already got a very long waiting list for such an eventuality.

    i think on the website is says "we will sell tickets only up to two-thirds of nominal seating capacity."

    bit of a shame as wouldnt have minded going, if anything it would have been more authentic to have a packed train :lol:

    “There will be no seat reservations so you can sit where you wish, and in the interests of comfort we will sell tickets only up to two-thirds of nominal seating capacity.“

    Plenty of posts on this forum explaining what this means and how tours can be ruined.

    I would imagine the motor coaches will be the first coaches to fill up, with the centre coaches being for late comers. Unless they do what the BLS do with some unit/light rail tours and assign you a coach but you are free to sit anywhere within said coach.

    I certainly expect sitting under the pantograph would be the last place anyone would want. I never sat there unless the train was full as I enjoy looking out the windows

    Ah forgot this thread was here - posted an update in the 313 thread :rolleyes:

    Here's the rear carriage as the train passed through FP a couple of minutes down on account of a late departure from the Cross. Quite smart, I thought. And no, I can't hold a camera straight......
