It's official (I've just seen it) that Romford to Upminster LO is being served by class 710's

Unnecessary plural?

I think he means that there shouldn't be an apostrophe in "710s".

Blimey, we must be bored if we've started picking each other up on points of grammar!

No, my particular pedantry was that I assume that it is still one train that goes up and down the line all day, so it should be "a class 710".

Ah, yes, it most likely is just the one unit.

But is it the same unit every day? If not, there are more than one 710 units on the line, just not at the same time!

But then again, if this thread started on the first day of them running then it would be singular then, but may well be plural now!

OK, that's enough pedantry on my part for one post.
