15
Transform and modernise the train interior with a refurbishment, delighting passengers and making mid-life trains as good as new.
16
Easy-clean and graffiti-resistant materials to maintain a high standard of finish
17
Customise the train's interior to match specific route requirements for storage space, seating layouts, and making trains more accessible to passengers with reduced mobility.
19
Enhance the passenger experience with power sockets, Wi-Fi, and seat-back tables, allowing them to make the most of their journey for business or leisure.
20
Improve passenger safety and real-time incident investigation with on-board CCTV, with footage transmitted remotely to operator systems.
21
Reduce crowding with automatic passenger counting technology, allowing passengers to find available seats quickly and reducing station dwell time.
22
Reduce operating costs and improve passenger comfort with an intelligent HVAC that adjusts carriage temperature automatically.
23
Improve energy efficiency and the passenger environment by installing modern, cost-effective LED lighting.
24
Provide passengers with up-to-date travel information to assist them with journey planning and improve their confidence in the operation of the network.
25
Improve passenger satisfaction with stronger mobile phone signal inside the carriage.
18
Improve the passenger experience by increasing luggage space and adapting the fleet for long-distance and airport services.

Controlling ‘brain’ makes tiny adjustments to departure or run times to react to even small disruption and keep to timetable.



1
Transform the fleet's appearance with bespoke operator livery to build your brand.
2
Improve passenger comfort and reduce the operating cost of the HVAC by installing solar gain film on windows to prevent over-heating in carriages.
5
Transmit energy consumption data from the train to Network Rail by fitting on-board energy meters.
6
Combat low adhesion with wheel slide protection software and multiple unit sanding, reducing damage and increasing the life of the wheel.
7
Reduce coupling failures in icy conditions with heated auto-couplers, averting delays and disruption for passengers and operators during service.
8
Reduce disruptions in service with forward-facing and pantograph cameras to monitor the infrastructure and resolve failures.
9
Reduce CO2 emissions and the cost of braking with regenerative brakes, which return surplus energy to the network and lessen the impact on friction brakes.
11
Reduce operating costs by installing cameras and cab-mounted screens to enable driver only operated doors.
3
Variable stiffness bushes on bogies reduce wear-and-tear to the track, limiting Network Rail's vehicle usage charges and creating a smoother ride for passengers.
4
Increase the fleet's maximum speed to 110mph operation to deliver faster journey time for passengers and adapt the fleet for inter-city operation.
12
Ensure safe opening of doors on routes with short platforms with automatic selective door operation.
13
Reduce energy costs with Sleep Mode software, which automatically switches off non-essential systems when trains are not in service.
14
Improve reliability and optimise maintenance by connecting key train systems to advanced data analytics engines.
10
Enable drivers to drive more consistently, efficiently, and safely with an in-built driver advisory system.
