Thameslink shows off shiny new Crofton Park trains

The BBC reports that the new Class 700 trains which will serve Crofton Park on the Blackfriars route from 2017 have been unveiled. Train designers don't tend to surprise and delight, so this one looks much like other trains you may have seen, except that there will be more than twice as many carriages, seating 80% more people during peak times - in other words, fewer seats per carriage, creating more standing room.
