Rail (UK) - - News - JU­LIAN GAJEWSKI.

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).
