Morning all. I have a vested interest in the implementation of the new December 2019 Greater Anglia timetable being a smooth transition as I'm a commuter on the GEML. I am also genuinely excited by the upcoming fleet even if my own trains, while very nicely kitted out, will be somewhat cosy. But there are some worrying signs. Without any fanfare or mention in the railway press, the introduction of the Aventras has moved from February to "Autumn". Just in time for 73 x 321s to come off least at the end of October. The issue of the rolling stock depot that never was (Brampton) appears to be up-in-the-air. The progressive change to the timetable seems to have been pushed back to late 2019 and will surely now be more of a "Big Bang" event. So there are warning signs enough, but now I've found out that the man charged with leading us into the unknown has....er...left GA. Mike Kean as jumped ship to work at Rock Infrastructure, who are leasing the new rolling stock, by some incredible coincidence! Worrying times.
