New trains from 2018
« on: December 23, 2015, 06:40:31 pm »
GTR has ordered variants on the Class 700 trains to replace the 313s in 2018. The new trains will be six carriages permanently, will have open gangways similar to London Overground trains but not logitudinal seating. There will be power sockets and also option by GTR to install WiFi but they have not confirmed yet. They will be air conditioned and have up-to-date information withe real-time passenger displays. However, there will be no toilets on the trains. The fleet will be 25 strong, replacing the 44 3-carriage trains.
