Default 4 car 378s on NLL

Any ideas about how long it will be before the first four car trains start?

Took a spin round the line yesterday, couldn't see a lot left to do at many
platform lengthening worksites...

A post, from Tim Dunning, on District Dave's forum says the first two
diagrams should start on 14th September. Both Richmond and Clapham
Junction will see 4 car trains.

Does that mean unit 225 will leave the ELL?

There are more 4 car units due for return from Derby before the due date,
211 and 216 I believe, and a few pf the /2s built as four car still to be
introduced are stored at Ashford. AFAICT the normal diagramming requires at
least one or two 378/2s on the ELL, I don't think 225 is especially
siginifcant.

I don't think the ELL actually needs units 201 or 225, which are based
there at the moment. The full service started with just the twenty
class 378/1 units. But having the extra 378/2 units gives a bit more
flexibility and keeps the units running after they have been
commissioned.

I think that eighteen units are required for the normal service with
one spare at Dalston Junction.

Hi,
On a more positive note, it appears that four-car 378s will likely begin to make an appearance on the NLL from next week onwards. Sources indicate that two sets will probably enter service on Tuesday, with more to follow as the arrive from Derby.Finally, for those whose memories stretch even further back than the 313s, Greg Tingey kindly sent us a photo of a 4-SUB unit and a BR 1950's slam-door set at Broad Street.
