Loads of caveats as at , but these show an interesting contrast between lines that are largely end to end and lines that have significant intermediate traffic.  On the former, end doors are fine ... on the latter, please can we have 150, 165 or 166.

Paignton-Exmouth is 4 car 150/2s or 2 car 150/2 with a 143 unit. Very rare to see a 158.

There are 8 143s due to go in December subject to cascading 165s Westward. 165s have already done gauging runs to Barnstaple, Paignton, Exmouth. There could be/was one at Exeter for training purposes.

The new depot at Exeter will have 600 staff and allow the extending of platform 2 to take a 5 car 802. It can and does take a 4 car XCountry.
