New London - Oxford rail link inaugurated
Wednesday, December 14, 2016



A second rail link between London and Oxford was completed on December 11 with the start of a new 30-minute-interval service operated by Chiltern Railways

Mr Chris Grayling, Britain’s secretary of state for transport, inaugurated the completion of the 320m project on December 12, which was funded jointly by Chiltern Railways, which contributed 130m, and infrastructure manager Network Rail, which funded the remaining 190m as part of a wider scheme to reopen the line from Bicester to Bletchley

Southwest Trains use a mixture of suburban, commuter and long distance stock.

The long distance stock includes Class 159 DMUs and Class 444 EMUS.

Suburban stock consists of Class 450 and Class 458/8 EMUS.

Finally you've got commuter stock which includes Class 455s and will be joined by Class 707s.

Here's my shot of Eurostar Class 373 half sets 3003 and 3004 being hauled to Kingsbury Scrapyard in Warwickshire by GBRF Class 66 66768.

So far, three sets out of 16 have been sent there, and the rest will be sent in due course with one going every month.

The whole fleet is going?

Will any be preserved?

I was under the impression that some were going to be refurbished for continued use?

How did they decide which ones would go?

A couple of TMST's will remain with Eurostar, but not all of them. Eurostar fleet management assesses all units and determines which ones are in the best condition for a refurbishment. The other ones are sent to the scrapyard.

Karen Boswell, managing director of Hitachi Rail Europe, said: "Today is a celebration of the return of train manufacturing to the north east, supporting thousands of jobs and developing a strong engineering skills base in the region."
Trains running across the country's rail network will be built by a proud workforce harnessing the best of Hitachi's long-standing rail expertise."

Rail Industry Strategy on Standards by RSBB

RSBB strategy for standards is designed to help industry work with standards and regulations at UK, European and international level, and clarifies how they help rail companies in addressing their legal and other obligations.

There are seven modules to the strategy framework, reflecting the different types of standards or rules which exist today.

A standard is an agreed way of doing something,

The aim of standards is to support a compatible, cost-effective, safe and efficient railway system,

To meet this aim, standards define and record what has to be done, or how something needs to be done. This avoids 're-inventing the wheel' each time the same situation occurs,

To provide our members with a clear framework to help industry apply standards, rules and best practice, and to take full advantage of the knowledge and guidance they contain,

This information helps rail companies to comply with the law, work effectively with other organisations, reduce costs and boost overall sustainability and effectiveness through open markets for railway products and services,

RSBB's role involves bringing the industry together to consult, agree, develop and publish appropriate standards and guidance, all of which can be found on the website.

Chiltern Railways' new Oxford to London Marylebone service started running last weekend. I went along on Monday 12th for the official launch day.

Here is some video:


Which is experiencing an error for no reason, so here's a normal link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88NrlR-601I
