Also, if people complain about Hitachis because they have no air-conditioning, why don't they also complain about the trams that don't have air-conditioning? In fact, they want our Hitachis gone but they want to keep the W-class trams.? At least riding a Hitachi with windows open at 115km/h feels as if there is air-conditioning, because of how fast it goes.
People who hate Hitachis also need to consider that there are people who like Hitachis.
Another thing, the major complaint about the Hitachis is, they have no air-conditioning. In Summer, yes, that's a problem. In Winter on a 15 degree day, who cares? If it's cold, no one needs air-conditioning. So it would be a good idea to store them when the temperature exceeds 30 degrees, but run them at all other times.
It's still better to get a train with no air-conditioning than to find out your train has been cancelled.
To those who posted here saying that you want the Hitachis to be withdrawn. That's your opinion, and you are entitled to it. I can't, no one can force you to like the Hitachis. If you don't like them, you don't have to sign the petition. I posted it here for the people who do like them (like me).
