Notes were for yesterday, back on the train today.

Does anyone know if any more SMUs 201 - 212 will be refurbished like 210? Seems to have gone quiet on that now. The emus are getting new gangway rubbers where needed and new pantographs still but if these are gonna be around for a couple of years I guess it’s just a case of make good if something occurs. Should be plenty of spares I guess!!
