First Group and rolling stock leasing company Angel Trains awarded Hitachi Rail Europe a £60m contract in November 2016 to supply five five-car trains for services from London King’s Cross to Hull and Beverley.
Hull Trains says production is on schedule and the first set is due to arrive in Britain in the first week of September. The trains will enter passenger service in October, replacing the operator’s fleet of Alstom class 180 DMUs. The final train is due to be delivered by the end of December.
