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.

Now that sounds good, if I can get away from work early. from what I understand of new train introduction elsewhere on the network, soft start is definitely the way to go..

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 & Islington and Moorgate you should use the front 5 carriages.

Have they designed trains that are too long for the platforms in the underground section?
