So delighted to announce that unit 230004, the second of the trains for the Marston Vale line, arrived at Bletchley today. The train travelled from Long Marston to Bletchley on the mainline and no doubt some excellent photos will appear online shortly. But for now we are very happy with this picture of it safely stabled at the depot.
Once again we owe huge thanks to London Northwestern Railway who have shown such faith and belief in us – as well as their invaluable help and support. Yes, we’ve had delays but we have always owned up to them and these are new trains and new technology and when all is said and done we are a few months, not a few years, behind schedule.
The trains will shortly be joined by 230005 and once again looking forward to some excellent new photos – as well as keeping updated on the next set of trains for the Wales and Borders fleet.
