Transport for London Get The Cleaners, Painters And Engineers Ready For The Shenfield Metro

There is an article in the Brentwood Gazette, entitled Shenfield to London slow trains to get refresh before end of year, which illustrates how Transport for London aim to hit the ground running, when they take over the Shenfield Metro services in May this year.

1. The Class 315 trains will be refreshed. I took these pictures.

I think that TfL could spend billions on these trains and they wouldn’t be that much better, as in their current state, they do the job they were built for of moving people in and out of London, reliably and with enough comfort for those with seats. So fixing the seat covers, perhaps getting rid of the awful pink colour and asking Aggie and her ilk to give them a good clean, and they’ll last until the Class 345 trains arrive.

2. Staff will be on duty when trains are running.

3. The stations will be fully integrated into TfL’s information and brought up to their standards.

I wonder if their other big acquisition in May;the Lea Valley Line services will get the same treatment.
