18 February (Part 1) - The Crossrail train is back

Class 345The Class 345 Crossrail train is back in Abbey Wood after an interval of nearly four months.

An email to Abbey Wood station staff says it will be shuffling back and forth to Whitechapel on test until June. It is being guarded day and night by Land Sheriffs Ltd.

Rather worrying is that Network Rail staff at the September Liaison Panel meeting expected that this testing stage would commence on 1st November last year but there have been power supply problems.

The gory details may be found at London Reconnections. (About six paragraphs down.)
