The Anonymous Widower

By Class 345 Train To Shenfield

This morning, I took one of Crossrail’s Class 345 train between Liverpool Street and Shenfield.

Even these initial trains, which are a couple of cars short of a full train, are a long walk from end-to-end.

I actually followed the driver, who was changing ends, by walking along the platform.

Two school parties of young children had arrived on the train, and she took time out from her walk, to chat to a couple of teachers and some of the children.

If you look at the second and last pictures, you’ll notice a door on the side of the cab. But the driver left and entered the train through the passenger compartment. In the last picture another driver is entering the train.He was perhaps taking over the train.

So it does seem, that drivers are happy to enter and leave the train, via the passenger compartment, which it appears they will be doing in the New Tube for London.
