Neil Robertson queried whether the new CAF DLR trains were articulated (as
would be expected) or not, because early photos appeared to show that they
weren't. A new photo has now emerged that confirms that he was right:

I must admit that this seems like a bad idea for open gangway stock on a
twisty (in all directions) network like that. The new T&W Metro Stadler
articulated stock looks 'right' in a way that the CAF stock does not. It's
a pity the new Metro trains don't have the popular forward views, though.
