When are the refurbished 442s coming into service? Any update?
Unfortunately I don't think they will come into service in December but I have heard rumours on RailUK Forums that they may come in January or February 2019.
No one seems to know seen a few of them parked up seemingly done but the problems with too much power consumption the cascade of existing rolling stock doesnt seem to be happening as planned.
On the South Western Railway Wikipedia article, it says the 442s are now in service(I don't know if this is true or not). See this link en.m.wikipedia.org/.../South_Western_Railway_(train_operating_company) and go to the rolling stock section
Oh wait. I think it now got changed and doesn't say the 442s are in service
I think there coming back in to service around this month
