On this mornings run, I think I saw a class 710 going over the
canal between Hoxton and Haggerston. (Maybe I misremember, and
it was between Cambridge Heath and London Fields).

But it begs the question: how goes the introduction? Do we
know when they're likely to enter service yet? Are we at the
stage where driver training can start in earnist yet, or are
they still trying to debug all the things?

ORR conditionally authorised 710s for
passenger use in AC mode on Thursday.

If they're only to run on the Goblin, why do they have DC ability too? Will
they ever get sent down to Richmond?

They are also planned to run on West Anglia, NLL, WLL and Watford DC
but I don't think they are needed as urgently there.

Not the NLL, that's keeping the 378s.

Apparently some of the 710s will be used on the NLL to free up some 378s
for the ELL.
