It's looking fairly likely that TfL will have to give away their diesel
trains before the electric trains are ready, and might end up

TfL certainly has a lot of looming issues. But I'd have thought it could
redeploy some of the 315s displaced from the Shenfield line as a very
short-term GOBLIN replacement fleet.
Stock training the GOBLIN drivers twice is probably better than
bustitution; but are the 315s commited elsewhere?
