Reported in Rail Magazine today that Ilford will be the eastern deport for Crossrail. Network Rail preparing an ITT for a possible rebuild of the site..... GA and Bombardier will be "welcome" to use the depot after it is complete. Now given that is has been discussed before in other threads (and widely acknowledged) that the current GA facilities cannot cope, what do people think about the above? Will this result in an even more unreliable knackered old fleet than we have now as priority is given over to Crossrail trains? Will GA unit maintenence become an afterthought?
