OK so for the last - well many many years - I have been after this one unit. Am going to Newcastle in a couple weeks in the (vain) hope that she may well be around. What I'm after is any local knowledge about this unit, if it still works or is shut away somewhere never to run again o_O.

I last saw it in service about a week ago paired with 4079. It still works, hopefully you'll be able to get it :)

Wouldn't be saying that if something happened and a report criticised staff for not responding to potential hostile recognisance. Personally I wouldn't have said anything unless you've used the flash.

It is clear in the conditions of carriage that photography is not allowed on the system, they're only doing their job.

No need for them to be nasty to you, I agree. Takes nothing to be kind and just clarify the situation to inform you of the policy or once established you're no threat turn a blind eye :lol:

Surprising someone’s actually managed to come across staff on the metro, they’re normally pretty thinly spread! Not sure why T&W Metro feels the need for such a draconian policy when other metros like London which have *actually* been the subject of terror attacks don’t.

Most of the CSAs I come across wouldn't know good manners if it spanked them on the bottom with a Woman's Weekly.

Unless they're dealing with the scrotes, of course. The scrotes would chin them, so they turn a blind eye...

This woman who works for the metro seems to be a shifty looking sort in plimsolls..... But that's the comprehensive system for you......
