Class 701

Five- and ten-carriage trains being built for our suburban, Windsor and Reading routes

Our new Class 701 trains are being built in the UK by Bombardier, and are expected to join our fleet thisyear. Fitted with some of the latest technology, including live passenger information systems, these trains will bring more comfortable journeys, extra trains, and quicker journey times. They'll replace the Class 455, Class 456, Class 458 and Class 707 trains.
