The 378s were ordered long before Kahn came in and froze fares.


Also long before there was any finalized plans to electrify the
GOBLIN in any sense; as has been described before.

Also TfL were already running low on money in the early 2010s which
would have been the latest possible time to order more 378s, and that
at a higher cost than the original units were since they'd used all
their option to buy more units.

Or the DC electrification project which would have cost the taxpayer
millions and set back OHLE by half a century further?


Half a century? Would the presense of a switched off conductor rail on a
closed for upgrade line cause some some disturbance in The Force preventing
the installation of AC overhead then? Oddly it didn't prevent most of the
rest of the NLL being converted to AC.


No, but having spent millions only 10 years ago will cause a
disturbance in the beancounters.
