Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

The 12 car trains are class 700 not the new Moorgate trains. There are a whole series of variants on this general design for different routes and power pickup types.

But the new trains for the Moorgate routes are a different version and will not have first class

Re: New trains on Hertford North route announced

I believe that no toilets and fewer seats is correct, they designed to be high capacity trains for relatively short duration journies. To see what they are like they are a dual voltage version of the 3rd rail 5 coach long class 707 recently introduced on South Western trains.

Nothing at all here in Bengeo. Only know the candidates as I am a postal voter and got the form a couple of weeks ago. Pathetic example of democracy

Re: Oh! My Cod!

Saw that yesterday night, it makes a positive contribution to the urban landscape. Does it have planning permission?

I like their chips, though

Re: Extending Oyster To Hertford East

The fares are all searchable at https://tfl.gov.uk/fares-and-payments/f ... are-finder.

The off peak and peak cap are the same as the travelcard prices from Hertford east.

Re: Buses to Stevenage

That seems to be the case following the county council's latest set of subsidy cuts. Just the odd 383 and 384 going the long way round. That service is not changing.
