And all I can do is LOL galore - (as long as noone is hurt or any serious incidents happen) - because...I look at West Midlands Trains and their much hyped 196s which have still to obtain the 50000 miles quality testing even now. And then things like this are abroad? I forsee WMT Birmingham-Hereford and Shrewsbury services suffering if they do not retain the faithful 170s as reserve. An insider friend of mine works 170s and says "they're tubs, they're old, the trim is falling to bits, but by gods they'll get you and everyone home and safe too. I'll miss them."
