I recall that the Sprinters were almost complete when Kennett got in and couldn't be cancelled.

Sorry this was meant to be in a Sprinter thread.

There's nothing overtly wrong with Sprinters. I can think of comparatively worse interurban trains to travel in.

better than a bus, yes.

I wish this was in the sprinter thread as it doesn't make much sense on it's own.

I should be careful what I post.

I've got to the point where I wait seven minutes longer to catch a V'lo home, if I am not in a hurry that is, but admittedly, this is probably because the service 7 minutes later is less popular. I find the spinters less comfortable, but they are not a bad train. I would take them over an H set.

Camster, we are so different, as I am ok the H sets, but only because of the seating. Because I am large, I can get in and out of the seats more easier than in the Sprinter or the V/Locity. And the backs are more upright which means more comfort. Having said that, the ride on the H sets are shocking.
I don't have any dislike for the Sprinter-they are serving their purpose well as a short haul rail motor.

I can pretty much find positives and negatives with most of what is running today (and my all time favourite apart from the old dog boxes - the a/c compartment cars used by WCR).

Perhaps the best attribute of Sprinters for the traveller is the great visibility.  The seats align to windows and there are very few side pillars.
