It’s never been exactly quiet in our workshops but this summer is the most exciting yet.  Right now we are:

  • building trains for the Marston Vale line
  • working through the approvals for 230002 – the UK’s first modern production battery train
  • carrying out mainline testing and mileage accumulation for 230001
  • starting work at our new Seaham plant
230003 back from the paint shop and ready
for fit out …
The interior layout is a bespoke design by WMTL specifically for passengers on the Marston Vale line, some aspects will be familiar from the design of 230001’s middle car but some are brand new.

WMTL’s design gurus have taken full advantage of the space available to put together something pretty special.  And, most importantly for passengers, have done everything they can to make sure the seats are comfortable (including testing them in a snowy car park!)

Important! The legal bit …

As you know new data protection laws are coming into force shortly – good news for all of us whose inboxes clog up so quickly.  We like to think that our messages don’t fall into that category so if you agree please sign up to continue receiving our newsletters
