710 on ELL?
 
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?

Cheers,
Mike

On a related note, GN tweeted recently that "Today the third class 717
train entered all-day weekday passenger service on routes to & from
Moorgate." So that explains why they are bit lacking in comfort?

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

There seem to be a couple of thing Arriva Rail have to do before they
can run a passenger service though so we aren't quite there yet.

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

Do they need it getting to and from depots?

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.

Thanks!

There seem to be a couple of thing Arriva Rail have to do before they
can run a passenger service though so we aren't quite there yet.


Well, if nothing else they have to train the drivers; hopefully
the two can be done in parallel.

Cheers,
Mike

Driver training was reported to have started weeks ago, but I don't know if
the software issues got in its way.
