    six carriages. Way to create a 'northern powerhouse'. Third or fourth hand stock should keep them quite up there!

    I think you will find that it is six UNITS as in twenty four carriages. But there again, it's Thameslink's throw outs

    It will be interesting to see how well these trains scrub up. After all, behind the badly designed 1980s interior, a Mark 3 coach is struggling to get out.

    These trains are still younger than 40 year old PEP stock many London commuters use !

      Well keep them in London and send us in the North some new stock eg 387. We pay taxes up here as well as those in the south east

    They have to be better than clapped out pacers (Class 142s), the ride will be a lot smoother.
