Sure is! To confirm that they're running, I saw a few today, in service! Whoever got hold of the info that they'd be withdrawn should re-contact their source! Alas, there won't be any on weekends :(. Long live the best modern EMUs, 458s!

When I went for my ''last'' JOP ride on 10th Dec, I was talking to a member of the SWT team at Ascot who said they were likely to continue running as Desiro availability was not as good as expected. If this is the case then catch 'em while you can - they will only be used for as long as is needed.
