Maybe not but in my years of commuting up and down the Northern Suburban line, 6 days a week at one point, of the about half of those normal journeys that were in Cravens, i never had a cancellation. Electricity broke once, and as it was the 7;14 ex balbriggan in mid-winter most of the journey was in total darkness, but that was the most trouble i ever had. As opposed to several failures and outright cancellations on the other trains, 2700 class in particular (but then we all know how bad they are!)

Yes the Cravens dont have a part in todays modern railway, but they did a good job, even in there twilight years which is the only time i knew them in, and il be sad to see them go.
