could anyone point me in the right direction for any images or link to images of a class 378 unit with the cab front end door open ? I understand the class 313 - 315 ( & 507/508?) units had a unique ladder that clipped on the front step allowing easy access to detrain in tunnels or elsewhere - versus the more regular two part emergency ladders common in 'guards van' and emergency equipment cabinets on train. Thanks to anyone able to assist
Surely if this unit is running on 4 rail track the ladder plonks straight onto the neg:rail and balances on a point about 4/5 inches wide?
I imagine that in those areas, they can evacuate through the side doors (as you might a normal train). The front evacuation door is required for the narrow single bore tunnels where you can't evacuate out of the side.
