I mean you've pretty much stolen my follow up there I was going to go on to ask what @158756 could tell us about the contract that meant it was so deficient so as to not properly incentivise CAF. Because I had assumed that any such contract would include plenty as standard. What stock? Poached from where? I am unaware of much stock sitting around spare (apart from the HSTs that have recently come on the market). There are a few rakes of loco hauled I suppose that could still be cobbled together if required. But that's about it. Plus that tends to come with it's own issues (see the famed unreliability of the 37s on the Cumbrian Coast). The 319 conversion is ongoing but also late Northern are supposed to be receiving some but are still waiting for them to be accepted into service. You'll forgive me but I just don't see that it's as simple as you're making it out to be.
