T430 21055 had a major door hissy fit at HOH and has only just left after a good 10 mins & 3 drivers looking at it! Feel sorry for these drivers still having to manage these issues, is this what some of the updates are for?
I saw 21301/2 run through Paddington Sub this morning with three in the cab, at about 1015. T200 I *think*, but not at all certain. There are some stickers on the doors instructing passengers not to board
The Admin team would like to thank all who have posted the above...
Sadly the news that S Stock deliveries are being targeted by vandals means that the Admins need to review what information is posted on the open forum. Sadly we therefore must instruct members not to post news of expected deliveries before the event.
21035 was out on the Met today displaying T700 (though I doubt this was the actual number?) and was definitely S8-1.
Also, 21045 was also running as T714. I'm not definite about this but I thought the train was formed S8 and no longer S8-1. Has it now been reformed? Apologies, but 21045 passed at speed the train I was on and it was a couple of seconds before I realised the significance of which train it was.
Further to my report two days ago concerning 21045/046, this train is in passenger service as an S8 today on the Met forming T414.
Also, 21307/308 is having a run out on the Met today as T711. I just wonder whether it is the intention that final S7 testing and commissioning activities will be done at Neasden prior to transfer to Hammersmith?
The Hammersmith-Moorgate section is a "Preview" service I believe the S7s will start running to Barking when the new timetable begins in December
Thanks for the info. Seems a fair gap considering the S8 fleet is pretty much done. They aren't likely to need many trains for the preview service stopping at Moorgate, so are the S7 deliveries going to be held off for 4 months or so, or are they going to start looking at the Circle line?
