The cab design for the bi-mode units for Greater Anglia has been unveiled by Stadler.
The manufacturer is building 58 trains in Switzerland for GA, with the first four-car bi-mode Class 755 due at Norwich Crown Point this October for testing, before entering traffic next year.
In a statement, GA called the cab the train’s ‘face’. Managing Director Jamie Burles said: “How exciting to see the first ‘face’ of our new Stadler trains. Engineers are working hard across the UK and Europe building our new trains, which we can’t wait to have in service.
“We’re sure they’ll make a huge difference to our customers - everyone will be able to plug in their phones or laptops, watch films on our new ‘infotainment’ system, or simply sit back and enjoy watching the East Anglian countryside go past through the large picture windows.”
