Railway Interiors International Magazine article on “the UK’s new intercity train”

Published on: 28th August 2014

In its Annual Showcase, Railway Interiors International Magazine talks about the challenges and hurdles Hitachi and DCA had to overcome “to create a modern but timeless interior” for the new Class 800 train.

The magazine touches on many aspects of the new train’s interior and describes how the train has been designed to be adaptable for travellers running up to 2050.

The article also shows how project stakeholders such as drivers, operating staff and passenger representatives were consulted on key decisions throughout the development process; from the colour scheme and materials selection to the luggage storage areas.
