That story appears to be a month old (but an interesting read
nevertheless).

Of course, what they should really "hold the front page" for, is a story
that a project like this was delivered on time.

Didn't Manchester deliver the airport extension early and under
budget? Can I nominate Transport for Greater Manchester to manage the
Edinburgh Tram extension project?

That ship sailed a long time ago for the Goblin.

Of course, it would have been even worse if the new trains had all turned
up on schedule and the wires weren't yet up. And at least the existing DMUs
haven't been committed to another TOC yet.

Last week I asked one of the station staff at Leyton Midland Road when the electric trains would be running. The answer was that almost none of the drivers had even begun learning how to drive the new trains.

Presumably *none* of the MTU drivers will have started learning to
drive them (except perhaps in the classroom and simulator), as none of
the 710s have been delivered yet? Or maybe they can start to be
trained on the similar class 345s in service with TfL Rail.

Sorry, that should be Arriva. MTU operates TfL Rail.

The OHLE is energised, is it not? Any chance that they can borrow
rolling stock from elsewhere in the meantime?

It is.

Then they'd have to train the drivers on them… Meanwhile, they still have
the 172s, which look very smart.
