    It's a typical SE metro depot.

    The only units they don't have is 319's

    Are you specifically looking for employment purposes ?

    It's a decent depot with a healthy establishment level. They also have the large sidings there and any Grove Park Driver will know it intimately.

    Metro depots are very generic work wise. Southeastern as a whole all work 24/7 with bank holiday's on rotation. Shifts are 1 week late/1 week early. 4.25d working week. Max 9hr 15m diagrams

    The biggest distinctions between depots are Metro/Mainline and location for getting to and from work. Grove Park is a 20min walk from the station. Anyone who lives in the area will know the perils but the times we start usually means the roads are empty. <D

    Its not my Depot.

    Personally I would concentrate on getting in the door than anything specific to the depot. They are a good bunch down there so nothing to worry about.
