Hey Guys, I have noticed most of SWRs Fleet still retains the SWT Livery, excluding the 455,456 and 458 does anyone know why the refurbishment of the Class 450, 158,159 and 444 is taking so long? Also on this topic why have the Class 442s not entered service yet? I thought they were due to enter service 2 months ago?

On a recent visit to Eastleigh Works, there seemed to be a lot of wiring being replaced in a number of 442 units. Whether this was operating systems, door controls or domestic services (heat/lights/usb points) I couldn't tell. The units are over 30 years old and are probably in need of rewiring from first principles after many years of alterations!
