Event Details

The North East Area Council welcomes Ian Hyde (Head of New Trains, Northern Railway), to come and talk to members about New trains in the North.

Northern Railway is procuring 281 new vehicles worth around £500m.  The order comprises a mixture of 3 and 4-car electric multiple units, and 2 and 3-car diesel multiple units. The 100 mph trains will be part of Spanish rolling stock manufacturer CAF’s Civity family, and are scheduled to enter service later this year.  The new trains will enable the fleet of 1980s Pacer DMUs to be withdrawn from the Northern franchise.

This event will be of particular relevance to those who are interested in rolling stock developments, as well as those who are studying on one of the IRO courses.

Light refreshments kindly supplied by Tracsis.

Please note that you should aim for a prompt arrival, as the reception area at the Academy will not be manned after 17:30hrs.

No need to book, but please email ne.events@railwayoperators.co.uk if you have any dietary or other requirements. 

Members are requested to bring along with them their membership cards.
