|Lee also passed through Hatton Cross on 4th March 2023, and he too found a previously unreported black Vauxhall Astra with Abellio! His was hatchback MV16OUK, as compared to Peter's estate MV17LVH. Lee took 2 photos of this car, and I have chosen to use the one lower in quality but higher in artistry! I can't call it a night shot though, as it was only taken at dinner time. Abellio London has been in the news again recently. The long-running strikes have ended following a resolution to the pay and conditions dispute. More significantly, the management buy-out agreed in August 2022 was finally completed in February 2023. Abellio London, along with several railway franchises, are now run by Transport UK Group. The NS logo (of Dutch Railways, the former owners) will no doubt be removed from fleetnames in due course, though it is not yet clear if the Abellio name will be retained.
