Ahead of its planned main line debut at Rail Live 2017 on June 21/22, Vivarail 230001 returned to the main line on June 14 for the first time since it caught fire during tests last December.
The three-car unit will be used for a passenger shuttle from Honeybourne to Long Marston (the location for Rail Live 2017). Following repairs and modifications, it ran from Honeybourne to Moreton-in-Marsh for testing.
The middle car of the Class 230 has been fitted out as a demonstrator vehicle to showcase some of the designs available.
