Yes, the last stats I saw had 91s as very reliable indeed. I've never been on a 91 nor GNER HST that's failed, and I travel a lot. GNER do look after their trains.AJP said:GNER must a hell of a lot more reliable than virgin. Ive seen two skips pull GNER sets but that was because there was diversions. Think of pendodildoes there always getting dragged by 57/3's.
Both probably down to the DVT cab being failed (AWS fault or something). It's not uncommon for sets to be turned at somewhere like Newcastle and continuing in reverse formation rather than the service being cancelled.tramboy said:there was a 91 at the London end of a train (with the DVT at the country end) running over the viaduct s/b here not long ago...odd! Plus, not so odd but fairly uncommon, a 91 ran through Donny slab end first coupled to the DVT on an empty stock move on Saturday. Makes the DVT a little pointless in that situation but never mind!
I doubt that. Got any figures?AlexS said:Class 91s were as bad as Pendolinos before the GNER refurbs.
When 91s were first introduced BR had to use other stock to cover for them as they were quite unreliable.AlexS said:Class 91s were as bad as Pendolinos before the GNER refurbs.
