    Thanks for the info.
    I've been on the 385's a fair few times this week. They ride very well imo, very similar to the 800's. There was some ride turbulence on the way back from Edinburgh at speed which I would of said was track quality related. On the Stirling line it was fine and also on a short trip to Bellshill today

    Only 334s. No other stock is allowed in passenger service (save for the sleeper) because of the lack of cameras on the train.

    Delivery paths have again appeared for Tue and Wed. Is it too much to hope that this time at least one of the missing three will be delivered?

    Had the bizarre experience of a 4 car 385 from Glasgow to Edinburgh via Shotts with a 1st class carriage today!

    Yes. For several months, I think.

    Hopefully solvable, as they have with other teething problems. Maybe related to the issues last year?

    My guess is that tomorrow is a backup for today. Ie if there is a delivery today then tomorrow will be cancelled, but if there isn't, and the unit will be ready for tomorrow, then they will be trying to arrange for an engine from Tyne or Tees.

    As the L||E does not appear to have run (by 20:49) is looks very much as though the Monday delivery will not to take place.
    Now there's a surprise!

    L||E shown to work today's (24/09/19) delivery has been caped.

    Anyone know if the left hand knows what the right hand is doing?

    Did the movement ever exist? No sign on RTT. And another poster usually tells us when there is a set prepared for departure.

    Never saw a L/E move listed just the unit movement @21.05.
    It really has been awhile since the last unit move and no one in the know is saying anything.
