Greater Anglia has revealed the accessibility features on its Class 720 fleet, as testing continues of the first electric multiple units.
More than 50 five-car sets have been built, but only four have been delivered to Ilford (720506/509/511/515), with one returning to the Midlands for warm storage (720506).
The accessible features include two wheelchair spaces and 48 priority seats on a five-car Class 720/5, while a ten-car Class 720/1 will have three wheelchair spaces and 106 priority seats.
Rail Delivery Group Accessibility and Inclusion Manager Dominic Lund-Conlon added: “With toilets on every train, power sockets and improved accessibility for customers living with sight loss and blindness, the trains will be a huge improvement for customers in the east of England.”
