ELECTRIC services between Maidenhead and London Paddington commenced on May 22 using a pair of Class 387/1 EMUs.
As well as replacing DMUs on commuter services, the Class 387s will provide more peak capacity between Maidenhead and London Paddington, offering a better spread of seats where they are most needed.
A further six four-car units will enter traffic in July, and allowing the Marlow to Maidenhead branch to now become a self-contained shuttle.
