Two new trains were due to be brought into service on Monday (11 March) but this was pulled on Friday. We've had "Autumn 2018", "early 2019", "soon" when Mark Prisk met GN representatives a couple of weeks ago. All 25 of the new units are now in the UK, sat in sidings ready to be used. The old train...

Re: Oyster coming to Hertford North

This morning, Great Northern tweeted that it "should" be available from mid-March.

However, they also said that the new trains would be in service at the start of the year.
