Event Details

Tom Cryer HST Project Engineer will provide an overview of the quantity and type of HST vehicle being cascaded from Great Western Railways, the scope of the refurbishment, vehicle integration programme, maintenance strategy and the development of the HST brand.

The HSTs will be phased into service from summer 2018, with the full fleet operational for the May 2019 timetable change. This aligns with the completion of Network Rail’s Highland main line journey time improvements project. 54 power cars and 121 coaches will be leased from Angel Trains. These will make up 17 five-coach trains and 9 four- coach trains with two power cars spare. The 2019 timetable will require 23 trains in service each day with five coach sets operating Central Belt to Aberdeen services and the four coach trains generally running to Inverness. The number of through services from Inverness to the Central Belt via Aberdeen will also be increased.

We will meeting at 17:30 for an 18:00 start and light refreshments and food for the event will be provided.  Post event there will be an opportunity for some networking.
