    They are very keen on the HS2 fleet contract. At Railtex they had a massive stand with shiny model trains, and my kids are still carrying things in the red Talgo bags they were giving away! Hitachi and CSRE seemed very keen too.

    Talgo trains are lighter, more efficient and cheaper to maintain. They also have the best accessibility in the market. It would be interesting to manufacture them in the UK.
