Hitachi Rail Europe has donated an Intercity Express Programme cab to the National Railway Museum.
The idea is that visitors will be able to view the latest innovations that HRE has installed in the IEP cabs, and compare it with the 40-year-old High Speed Trains that IEP will replace on the Great Western and East Coast Main Lines. It had previously been used for training at North Pole.
“By 2020 over 280 Hitachi trains will be running on the UK rail network, all of which are packed full of modern technology and sleek designs,” said HRE Managing Director Karen Boswell.
“We want those in schools and colleges to be part of our mission to transform UK rail, and show the industry can once again be a British success story.”
