Hitachi Rail Europe have released their first IEP Newsletter

Published on: 26th February 2014

The newsletter will keep key stakeholders and interested parties informed about the progress in various areas of the project, including the interior design being developed in conjunction with DCA.

The Intercity Express Programme (IEP) is an initiative by the Department for Transport (DfT) that will provide the infrastructure and rolling stock needed to support growth and improvements on the Great Western Main Line and the East Coast Main Line intercity rail routes. Following the electrification of the Great Western Main Line, a fleet of bi-mode Class 800 and electric Class 801 trains will be deployed on the line from 2017, with further fleets of trains to come into passenger service on the East Coast Main Line from 2018.
