    With the 717s finally entering public service, it might be a good time to start a thread for the withdrawals of the 313s on Great Northern for when they do start getting retired and sent to become razor blades.

    I believe 313026 has been stood-down due to various issues?

    (Sorry if there is already a thread, I did look back but couldn't see one)

    Actually the side paintwork / vinyl appears in quite good condition compared to the normal 'faded graffiti' livery...

    Nevermind 'faded graffiti' - seen several units in service with graffiti on them that GN hasn't bothered to clean off.

    Most have been cleaned, but there have been more attacks recently - including two 700s ending up with smashed windows.

    Failed 313 at Brookmans Park so the 14:44 from FP went fast line, extra BP stop to pick up passengers, then direct to Hatfield stopping at platform 2.

    Was it a failed unit ? NR is saying a person taken ill, ambulance on its way.

    But presumably nothing to do with withdrawal of the class?

    Is that because after the passenger illness the train has to be taken out of service ? Bodily fluids / Opened First aid kits etc ?

    Is it possible to see 313026 as you pass Hornsey Depot on the train?

    Nnnnnoooooooooo!

    Well, we knew it was inevitable, but it still feels a bit surreal seeing these trains going, having grown up with them simply seeming a timeless part of the local scene (even if I haven’t actually used them *that* much).

    I hope they eventually get a decent send-off.

    Yes, I saw it (can't confirm number but there was a forlorn 313 and a 57!).

    57312 has been on scrap duties quite a bit recently! I believe it also took 314201 to Newport for scrapping around 2 weeks ago from Shields TMD in Glasgow

    Need some usable parts to be shipped down to Brighton to keep Southern's Class 313 fleet going... (313.201 springs to mind)

    There'll be the odd one about for a good while, albeit only the barrier/translator vehicles converted from class 508 cars.

    Not sure if you haven't picked up on this but since when has Network Rail moved Crews Hill from the Hertford Loop to the Hertford East branch line?

    Someone better report this, a station is missing!

    With the May timetable change at Stevenage and the introduction of the replacement bus service to Monday to Sunday and the 717s being introduced is it possible that the last 313 from Stevenage will be on the 17/18 May 2019.
