London Bridge - Uckfield line - Posted: April 2, 2017 - 10:06 AM Quote and reply
Since everybody else has been reporting matters in the local paper, an article appeared in the local paper here for the 24 March. A complaint had been made about poor timekeeping on this line by season ticket holders.

The spokesman for Southern stated that the new trains imported from Scotland were not as reliable as the existing units that Southern had.

This is borne out by the fact that I have yet to see a Scottish import on the Brighton Ashford service. This line is, of course, further away from the Selhurst depot.

Performance wise the Scottish units are up to scratch, and historically Scots people have a good reputation as engineers. I wonder what happened?
