Predictive maintenance at the heart of Thameslink EMU depot
15 Oct 2015









UK: ‘We want to prevent malfunctions before they even occur,’ said Siemens Mobility Division CEO Jochen Eickholt when Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin officially opened the new rolling stock depot at Three Bridges on October 15.

The depot will maintain the 115 Class 700 Desiro City electric multiple-units which Siemens is supplying for north–south commuter routes through central London.

The Department for Transport has ordered the EMUs under a 20-year deal with Cross London Trains, a special purpose joint venture of Siemens Project Ventures, Innisfree and 3i Infrastructure. Siemens has a separate contract for their maintenance, and ‘making sure our trains are available for service day-in, day-out, is key’, said Eickholt

TfL undertakes further Crossrail 2 consultation
29 Oct 2015



UK: Transport for London has begun public consultation on the route and design of Crossrail 2, a proposed tunnel running under London from Wimbledon in southwest to Tottenham Hale and New Southgate in the north. This would connect existing suburban rail networks at each end.

TfL said two previous consultations had demonstrated ‘overwhelming support’ for the project from the public and businesses. The latest round of consultation is seeking views on:
  • Locations of proposed station entrances, tunnel portals and ventilation shafts;
  • Locations for construction sites;
  • Proposed Crossrail 2 service patterns and changes to existing rail services
This round of consultation runs until January 8 2016, and would be followed by others as the project progresses. Subject to government approval and funding for the scheme, TfL envisages that construction could begin in 2020 with the first services running in 2030

Press release from Thameslink Railway:

Quote:
http://www.thameslinkrailway.com/abo...ngdon-station/

Crossrail work begins at Farringdon station
29 Oct 2015

Crossrail works are starting at Farringdon station on 31 October and will last for 3 years, while the station is redeveloped to provide a direct connection for passengers to Crossrail services.

This will result in changes to the ticket hall, including a complete closure of the ticket office over this weekend (31 October/1 November) and one of the two sets of stairs to Thameslink platform 4 northbound services will be closed.

Once the work is completed, passengers will benefit from a new escalator, (lift and stairs) to Thameslink and Crossrail platforms, a major new rail interchange providing access to three rail networks: Crossrail, London Underground and Thameslink Network Rail, bringing passengers from outer London to the business hubs in the West End, the City and Canary Wharf, and connecting with three of London’s five airports, providing a highly desirable railway connection to Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton

Oyster and contactless to reach Gatwick Airport in January
10 Nov 2015



UK: On November 10 Rail Minister Claire Perry announced that an agreement had been reached by the government, Transport for London and train operator Govia Thameslink Railway which will enable passengers to use contactless bank cards and TfL’s Oyster smart card on rail services between London and Gatwick Airport from January 2016.

The cards will be valid for pay-as-you-go travel on GTR’s Southern, Gatwick Express and Thameslink branded services to Horley, Salfords, Earlswood, Redhill, Merstham and Gatwick Airport.

All existing peak and off-peak fares, advance fares, period fares and group ticket offers from Gatwick Airport will be maintained, including the Thameslink-only fares, and may be cheaper than pay-as-you-go. Platforms 13 and 14 at London Victoria are dedicated to Gatwick Express-branded services, and their ticket gates will be programmed to apply the premium fare for the airport shuttle

In case someone missed that out, YouTube user Southern Train Routes posted some of Southern trains routes from drivers view position. As those are mostly from "metro" services this topic is best for it. Below latest video, but user has its more and mostly from both directions, enjoy
