The Anonymous Widower

Insights From The RidingTheGoblin Twitter Feed

There are some insights to be gained by watching the RidingTheGoblin Twitter feed.

  • There are the usual complainers and pessimists.
  • There is information about failed lifts and other problems from London Overground. Usually, lifts seem to get fixed even in this cold weather.
  • Yesterday a diesel train failed and it had to go to Willesden to get repaired. A couple of hours later, London Overground, announced that it had returned to the fray. Their words not mine.
  • Tom Edwards from the BBC, stated that the new trains won’t arrive before the last diesel train departs.

I think that in mid-March we could end up with the backstop of three Class 378 trains providing a half-hourly service, but the overall capacity will still be the same as with a full fleet of diesel trains.

One extra train would make a lot of difference and the Twitter feed shows one Class 710 train at Walthamstow Queens Road station last night.

It could be a close-run thing!
