Event Details

The North East Area Council is pleased to announce our forthcoming visit to the Intercity Express Project maintenance facility in Doncaster, where we will be given a tour of the depot.

Virgin Trains are introducing 65 Azuma trains, in both electric and bi-mode versions, on their East Coast route from 2018.  The new fleet of Azumas will bring a transformation to the route, and propel one of the UK’s most prestigious lines into the 21st century.

This visit will be of particular interest to those who are keen to further their knowledge of traction and rolling stock, especially as it gives the opportunity to see at first-hand how a modern maintenance depot operates.

Places are very limited for this visit with places to be allocated by ballot, which will take place on 23 January 2018.  Further details will be given to those who have been allocated a place.

The visit will end at approx 14:00 hrs.  Light refreshments will be provided.
