Watford Gap Services: Abellio E20Ds

Steve Buckley has again provided us with more shots of Abellios new 10.8m E20s for the Route 290 which runs from their Fulwell Garage (TF) in West London. There has been questions over the lengths of these vehicles, however with these better angled shots, they can confirm that these are in fact 10.8m.

Abellio London E20D 8782 YX61 GBO departs from Watford Gap services after arriving from ADL 's Scarborough Plant. From here it will continue on the second leg of its delivery run to Abellio London's Fulwell Garage for the Route 290 contract. This is one of 6 new 10.8m E200s numbered between 8777 - 8782.

Jay, why are they called E20D is it because of that WTA spec?

"Anonymous" is wrong. They are 10.8m. Apart from the fact I know they are, you can tell by the length of the N/S window directly in front of the centre doors, and if you look carefully they have 3 pairs of seats in front of the centre doors. 10.2m versions have 2 pairs.

Steve i dont know what 10.2m e200s you have been travelling on in london but all 10.2m e200s have 3 rows of seats on the nearside infront of the centre doors, so thats where you failed already and infact i am just going to laugh when you all realise they are actually 10.2m not 10.8m for now i am not saying anything.

These are so obviously 10.2m. If you compare this to the 117 batch, they are exactly the same, whereas if you compare it to the 152 batch, or a First DMV, you can see an extra opening window in front of the rear door, and that window is bigger.
