    Just on a 313 and noticed new lighting, with all new diffusers. The lights are a very cool (bordering on blue) temperature which isn't working very nicely with the cream walls.

    They seem quite dull too, as I go through tunnels and it's a lot darker than it would have been without the diffusers!

    From what I can see, nothing else has been changed.

    That wasn't 313059 per chance was it? That unit has had that lighting for well over 6 months fella and think only one carriage in that unit got done too.

    I can see the next carriage has it, and will check unit number when I get off. Coach number is 62586 if it helps.

    It wasn't so bad once we were underground to Moorgate and my eyes adjusted. I'd sooner have warmer lighting though.

    Funny how FCC put cool lights on 317s and then changed back fairly soon afterwards. History repeating itself?

    I hate it with a passion. Just like fGW.
