Class 378s enter service!

378 005 at Stratford on 29th July 2009 on the 13:07 to Richmond

The Class 378 units have now entered service on the North London Line between Stratford and Richmond. If you have travelled on one of these units, the Editor of Live Rail would be very interested to know your impressions of these units. Do bear in mind the context in which these units were introduced - "metro style" services, with frequent stops, akin to a tube train. Are they, in your opinion, suited to this role? Please forward your comments to Simon Jeffs by September 18th, so your opinions can be included in LR230.
