Does the London terminal see more than 50% of trains that are diesel?
This is a Central line train to "Woodford via Hainault"- it always is, except when you actually want one!

That question implies that in order to get a yes answer, more than 50% of the entire existing fleet of diesel trains would have to visit it regularly.

I think the question should have been worded 'are more than 50% of the trains that visit this station diesel powered?'.

I'm sure RobbieM will be forgiving rather than pedantic.

Miscommunication leads to incidents, especially on the railway. :roll:

Aah, tractakid, you know me too well. I will indeed be forgiving.

  • I'm 99% sure my answer is correct here - but if you can point me to a source to check for sure, I will confirm
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

Does the train terminate at either Tring, Milton Keynes Central, or Northampton?

Nope - none of the above three is the termination station of this service. (9/20)

Is your train operated by a subsidary of First Group?

That's narrowed it down, are you on a Pendo?

I am still trying to work out what operator you are travelling with....

Of those with OHLE and a London Terminal it can't be C2C, LE, FCC, VT or FGW (or HEX as PAD has more diesel trains than electric). Which leaves LM but tractakid has already asked about them....

Are you on the SET high speed line?
