The Department for Transport announced a £4.5bn investment in new trains with the award of a contract to finance, build and maintain new intercity trains.
Agility Trains, a consortium of Hitachi and John Laing, will provide 596 new trains replacing the Intercity 125 stock first deployed in the 70s and 80s. The new trains will be faster accelerating and therefore offer the opportunity to run more frequent services when they start service in five years' time.
Hitachi will assemble the new fleet...+60% more
