What is special about Hitachis which keeps you people interested?
Now; please!. . . before people jump up and down and call me a philistine . . . my interest is not suburban trains, but I know that others like them. So, my question is just that - a question - and I'm not having a shot at anyone.
From Seaford to the city, I can get out of a Hitachi and feel ready for a day of work. In anything newer, the seats are so hard and uncomfortably cramped, I feel like I need about a days worth of physio to get the cramps out of my knees and back.
To me, they were built in an era where people actually planned and thought about passenger comfort, not just how many bums on seats they could cram into the one carriage.
Plus with the windows down it feels like you are travelling at near light speed on some sections. Makes me feel like being a kid all over again.
