  1. On other news, ex London E400 472 is out & about and i have to say they've done a decent job of converting it to single door layout

  2. 471 (the 2nd E400 single door conversion) is out of the paint shop.

    1. Incorrect....471 is the 3rd single door conversion.
      473 was the 2nd, 470 is being converted now and will be the 4th.
