Bombardier ‘710s’ undergo testing
Testing of London Overground’s Class 710 electric trains continues with 710266 standing at Milton Keynes Central on November 19, having arrived with the 2032 test run from Willesden. Six of the Bombardier Class 710s have been delivered for testing and commissioning. They were due to enter traffic in March, but have been delayed by software problems. LO will put them into traffic on the Gospel Oak-Barking route initially, although the local user group is not convinced that they will enter service in December as planned ( RAIL 866).
