2019, Neil J Robertson remarked:

Unlike cars trains are build to order. It would have been
fairly simple for Bombadier to build some more 378s

Not if you've thrown away the jigs, and/or there are compliance issues
with a new build of an old design.


And, of course, the 378s do not share a platform with the S stock. Neil is
wrong, as usual.


Same traction and control system which is the important part.


Really?

The bodyshells
are all built to order anyway.


Using jigs.


I notice you never point our when you're wrong which is pretty often.
Still think ordering the 710s was a great idea?


Yes, of course.
