Following our announcement in September about a £26m investment in the Island Line, we're pleased to have bought new Class 484 trains for this unique railway. They'll replace our Class 483 trains that currently run on the Island Line.
These new trains will have:
- on-board information systems
- modern safety equipment
- dedicated spaces for wheelchair users, with call for aid buttons to request assistance if you need it, and
- recharging points accessible from every seat.
We're working with the team at Vivarail to finalise the design of these trains - so check back soon for more updates.
