Default What news on the Goblin 710s?

The issue is not if it was right to order the 710s. It's whether
TfL should have allowed for a delay preventing their being
in use by December, 2019.


Well they've never been blessed with foresight and they've
painted themselves into a tight corner. If they can't find
some spare 378s then it looks like it'll be a bustitute
until the 710s turn up - whenever that will be. If the delays
are as stated purely down to software issues then I'd venture
these issues are pretty intractable since they should have had an
off the shelf solution ready to go, its not exactly bleeding edge
tech.
