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.
are all built to order anyway.
Jigs arn't rocket science and reassembling some for an older design would be a
lot less expensive than the mess we have now.
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.
Why not go ask some goblin passengers and see if they agree with you.
