This will come as something of a surprise to Mark Prisk who, just yesterday, tweeted this:

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

Has anyone noticed the posters at Hertford North regarding the new trains? All of the new trains are 6 carriages (and you can walk the whole length of the train without going through any doors). The posters at Hertford North say that if you intend to get off at any station between Highbury & Islingt...

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

There's actually a "soft preview" service that runs on Friday afternoons from Moorgate to Gordon Hill. It leaves Moorgate around 1430. From what I've seen it runs non-stop from Finsbury Park to Gordon Hill.

Re: Key smartcard at Hertford North

My card is working again now. It seems that some cards were working and others not. I was asked to provide the barrier staff with the number on my card and then yesterday evening the barriers finally let me through.

Re: Key smartcard at Hertford North

Yes, I did. They said that they would pass it on to the station manager. I've spoken to most of the barrier staff and they now just let me through the gate after I have tried to tap out. That causes a bit of an issue as I then have a load of incomplete journeys on my history and have to check my acc...

Key smartcard at Hertford North

Has anyone else been having problems with their Key smartcard at Hertford North? Last week mine was refused one evening and hasn't worked at the barriers since then. It's worked at Alexandra Palace, Bowes Park and Drayton Park so it doesn't appear to be my card.

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

There's a review of the trains on YouTube which shows what we will be getting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0poGWvkkQ8&t=7s In summary: Fewer seats More standing space Power sockets USB charging sockets Wifi Onboard travel information No toilets With non-opening windows, hopefully we will have a...

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

On the train in to work yesterday one of the new trains passed me going North and pulling about eight or ten freight trucks. I don't know how long the passenger part was, as I looked up as it passed so only caught the last carriage, and then all the freight trucks. It was a shorter formation then t...

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

Two of the new trains have been spotted near Harringay / Hornsey today.

All they need to do now is teach the drivers how to operate them* and route-train them.

* Hopefully that will include how to turn on the heating when it is cold and the air conditioning when it is hot.
