    Mostly 365 but still the occasional 156/158/170.

    I have have sneaky suspicion the HS2 trains will be nothing like "special" at all and probably just the same as the Class 800s!

    Ehmmm what? Well I suppose ''Train on lorry crashes into baseball bat-wielding driver's car'' could make an interesting headline.

    I take it the proposed Polmaise EMUD south of Stirling is well & truly dead as well? What’s the proposed replacement? Light servicing in Stirling station with any DMUs going to Perth as at present?

    Surely there must be a train crew depot wherever units are stabled overnight?

    Local NIMBY's killed Polmaise which is why I'd expect the wires to reach Perth sooner rather than later to avoid the need to return to Edinburgh/Glasgow at night but yes, at the moment multiple units stabled overnight in Stirling.

    Looks like there may have been another breakdown at Croy. All trains from Queen Street are cancelled past Lenzie

    Do you know why they've gone to Ashford? The Hitachi depot there I would of thought?

    As both Govia and Abellio have partnered with Hitachi should they retain/win the Southeastern franchise, I'm wondering if it's for management and/or stakeholder review.
    (Either that or they're fitting shoes to them, one of them is part '442' after all! ;) :) )

    Since it was a Japanese produced unit. More likely on delivery to Hitachi in Doncaster or Newton Aycliffe.

    I see that all 35 delivered so far are now in service. I'd expect deliveries to restart from Newton Aycliffe next week and there are two Japanese built 3 carriage sets to come from Ashford.

    have seen a few since December but largely 365's. Travelling that way Monday and Tuesday so will report back, think some of the morning peaks are still 156 though that might be from Alloa rather than Dunblane?

    Glasgow to Alloa sees 156s or did.
    Are any 385s on Dunblane runs?
