    Class 376 refurbishment?

    Only a few units were done fully in the end, most 377/5s still have the original seat covers. Both 377163/164 were refreshed inside & repainted externally in 2019 as per all the other Southern 377s (albeit still in SN livery). Unfortunately that project hasn’t included 377/5s so they continue on...

    Class 707 to Southeastern Dates

    Definitely not happened for a number of years on Southeastern (at least 4 or 5).

    Except there aren’t any plans to refurbish them currently.

    Any source for this?

    Class 376 refurbishment?

    As far as I know, they have no plans to refurbish them.

    May 2021 Timetable Change

    On both GTR & SE it won’t be a return to any sort of pre-COVID timetable in May. Simply not the demand for that many commuter services in the weekday peaks. Especially as the work from home advice will be one of the last things to change and even then it’s far from certain how many people will...

    December 2020 Timetable Change

    From January to the 21st February the service was reduced on GTR in a way that reduced diagram numbers until a more long term solution could be sorted. The plan was always that the Horsham - Peterborough’s would go back to half hourly from 22 February regardless of any local rail user...

    Telegraph reporting 50-60% of services to be cut due to impact of covid

    Both operators have removed some duplicated service groups at weekends. Although given this is normally a busier time of year for Engineering Works, it’s often not that noticeable anyway.

    Telegraph reporting 50-60% of services to be cut due to impact of covid

    It’s the case that both GTR & SE are currently planning on keeping their weekday service the same now until May. The timetables introduced on 22 February catered for schools returning already. Weekends are far less reduced on both operators anyway.

    Telegraph reporting 50-60% of services to be cut due to impact of covid

    Southeastern's new timetable started today, Off Peak Charing X Mainline services reduced from 6tph to 1tph towards Ashford and 1tph towards Hastings, Maidstone East line reduced to 1tph too with formations reduced to just 4 cars for most of the day (some, but not all 8s in the peak). What a...

    Class 707 to Southeastern Dates

    The answer to both of those is no, we dont know yet!

    Southeastern Maidstone - Blackfriars 2022.

    I meant yep, given the question was whether they were still running (which they are).

    Southeastern Maidstone - Blackfriars 2022.

    New, so Maidstone East would have 4tph to London off peak rather than the current 2. Yep the Maidstone West to St Pancras services still run. Albeit only 2tpd in each direction rather than the previous 3.

    Southeastern Maidstone - Blackfriars 2022.

    The 465/9 would've been used as cover or because that's all that was available. Purely chance it was on the diagram that connected better. The issue at Swale only became an official thing in December 2019. Prior to that 465s were used on there occasionally calling at Swale without a problem.

    Southeastern Maidstone - Blackfriars 2022.

    The issue with 465s is the rear cab door hanging off if the driver doesn't pull past the end of the platform slightly at some stations. They did run along there okay from October 2011 to May 2012 alongside 2x2 466 however. 375/3s work fine for along both lines but shortly after introduction the...

    Who would you vote for in a General Election? January 2021

    As ever, online polls often skew heavily towards Labour, honestly I expect all that would come out of another GE would be another Conservative led government.

    Southeastern Maidstone - Blackfriars 2022.

    Note that with 707s coming in, they'd easily free up enough 465/9 + 466 (6 Car) diagrams solely on Metro currently. Then you've got two 8 car 377 diagrams that are currently peak only and spend all day in Grosevenor Shed. I think that's where the stock will come from rather than any splitting...

    Class 707 to Southeastern Dates

    That's because it was the proper livery until the 375 refresh came about. Hence why 375609 was put into it when it had corrosion work done a few years back. 465s won't be put into blue as they've already been treated - 376s (if done) would be in all over blue as would 707s probably. There's no...
