that the last six 172s were due to depart by the end of 2018. I now read
that their lease has had to be extended by a further two months.
Unlike the Crossrail Aventras, the Goblin 710s don't have the complications
of having to handle multiple signalling systems, so presumably the problems
lie in the bog standard (though they're sans bogs) Aventra software
platform (the 345s use an older, Electrostar derived platform). These
problems will afflict any other Aventra deployments.
Does anyone know any more?
