In Pictures: Overground Class 710s Enter Service


After what can only be described as a painful gestation, the first of London Overground’s new Class 710s have now entered service.

Two units are now running in full passenger service, with the first leaving Gospel Oak at 11:36 on the 23rd of May. Below is a selection of photos taken during this first run.
