    ScotRail’s New Trains Procurement Programme

    380s are also diagrammed far more regularly around the Cathcart Circle than 385s, so I’d be surprised if they were restricted. They seem almost more common than the 318/320 fleet, I’ve found, and the same for services to Paisley Canal and Newton.

    ScotRail’s New Trains Procurement Programme

    I’m pleased to see there will be much more electrification than I had been aware of, thanks to the above for informing me on this. However, it remains still slightly ambitious that all of this can be electrified in time. I hope it will be. :)

    ScotRail’s New Trains Procurement Programme

    If you ask me, it’s really rather ambitious. Not the entrance into service dates of the new fleet… the fact they’re allowing eight years for the first fleet from procurement to being in service is quite the opposite… but the fact they’re going to rely so heavily on the development of Hydrogen...

    It said subfleets, not fleets. 43/153/156/158/170/318/320-3/320-4/334/380/385 1660052899 You’re exactly right when you say this plan will run them into the ground. By 2032, I would hate to see what state these fifty-two (the oldest built in 1975) year old locomotives will be in. Let’s hope...

    Where Do Class 375/3s Actually Run?

    There’s the occasional seven carriage formation on Charing Cross/Victoria services, but it’s not particularly common. There are only ten though, and the Medway eats up three including a peak extra, then the Sheerness branch uses two, which is half spoken for already. There’s two or three...

    Class 395, why only 140mph?

    That and also the separate platforms at Ebbsfleet and Ashford, which of course I know are there for a reason, but from a passenger perspective on HS1 it does look a wholly separate operation. :oops:

    The Future of Thameslink

    To be honest, who can blame her? It's a silly name for a company operating predominantly stopping services in London and Hertfordshire, with one "long" distance route to Norfolk, which is hardly up north. Whatever the heritage of the railway is, it's a silly name for what the TOC is today, and I...

    The Future of Thameslink

    I'm not doubting you, but I don't quite understand why one would be there.

    Class 395, why only 140mph?

    It’s news to me that Eurostar and SouthEastern even share the same tracks. I thought HS1 was largely four tracked and E* and SE had two each.

    ScotRail’s New Trains Procurement Programme

    Did I read that right - in 2022/23 they will order trains that will enter service “by 2030”?? Up to eight years?!

    Waterside Line (Southampton - Hythe)

    I wonder what the planned frequency would be? I assume a clockface hourly service.

    What does the future hold for free WiFi on trains?

    The problem is though, where strong and reliable Wi-Fi would really come in handy is when the train crosses areas of little or no service, or goes through tunnels. For example, south of Stevenage, it’s almost impossible to make calls or use data to connect to the internet on the ECML.

    Elizabeth line full service timetable

    I just think that Stratford as such a major interchange hub would benefit greatly from direct trains to Heathrow, but I suppose you’re right in saying that a simple change wouldn’t be the end of the world. Ahh, well, I can put my pride aside for now then ;)

    Elizabeth line full service timetable

    I appreciate both your point and your desire to critique every post I make, but when Crossrail was heavily promoted as something that would boost connectivity between East and West, you’d surely expect them to run direct services from East to West at least.

    Elizabeth line full service timetable

    Quite so. I read that all ex Shenfields will terminate at Paddington, which, if is the case, is appalling.

    Progress of delivery of cascaded/refurbished/PRM modified stock to TFW/Wales and Borders

    Thanks. I find formations like this fascinating.

    Progress of delivery of cascaded/refurbished/PRM modified stock to TFW/Wales and Borders

    RTT suggests the 0935 Swansea - Manchester Piccadilly was formed of seven coaches from Shrewsbury, consisting of three 153s sandwiched between two 150s. I’m assuming this is a data error as I think this surpasses the number of Sprinter cabs permitted on a passenger run.
