if you look closely at the train, you can see it is B23. Meaning we only need to find B24 before we can turn our eyes to the second order (B25-B41)

Incidentally, this photo was revealed on Apple News, hence the screenshot and the Drive link

there is a second b set next to it, could that be B24?

B24 is still at Cardiff. Not sure on the transfer date.

Run 60 operated by a K set today. It also looks like they are doing one transfer a week, so B24 will most likely be transferred next week.

Been told there's a large gap of duration between B23 and B24 entering service due to a confidential reason.

^ The train next to it is an A set, as there is no display unit above the lower deck stairs.

Good catch, I was only looking at the similar tones of orange, didn't look finely.

B14 was operating run 43 today. 1st day being a B set. I think run 41, 42 and another run are K set rosters left to change to B sets possibly at the beginning of the new timetable on the 28th this month.

Thanks for the updates scott.

The earlier b sets all seem to have an ongoing issue with the driving cars... it sounds like the wheels on the front bogies have flat spots and a metallic rattling noise?
