New Train TIN-watch takes a longer-term view of reliability improvement

 
TIN-watch graduate: reliability of the SWR Class 707s improved quickly and they soon exceeded the 50,000 MTIN MAA threshold for inclusion in TIN-watch. Nos 707025/010 arrive at Raynes Park with the 11.11 Shepperton to Waterloo service on 20 January 2020.

I'm beginning to wonder whether adding Technical Incidents per 100,000 miles to the table was such a good idea after all. Even when a fleet has to score under five to be borderline respectable, there are some depressingly large numbers as you go down the table. On the other hand, it provides a more direct overview than comparing Miles per Technical Incident.

But begone dull care. For this month I thought I would see if I could find some good news.
