    As the SWT Class 707 Desiro City trains are to be built they are to be used between London Waterloo-Windsor & Eton Riverside route. They could also be used between London Waterloo-Guildford and London Waterloo-Reading semi-fast services with Class 458/5's to be operated on London Waterloo-Reading route as they are being converted to 5-car trains.
