Arriva Rail North places order for 281 carriages

January 24, 2016

The incoming Northern franchise operators have placed an order for 281 new carriages to start arriving on the Northern network in 2018. The trains 100-mph trains will be built by Spanish company CAF and include air-conditioning, wi-fi, power sockets, CCTV etc.

As high-speed trains they’re unlikely to be seen on Walkden services but their arrival on the region’s inter-city routes will allow better trains to be “cascaded” down to local services.
