First sight of Vivarail’s brand new battery powered test train. 

We have now begun testing our brand new battery powered demonstrator vehicle at the Quinton Rail Technology Centre, and are gathering the data needed to analyse range and performance.  Development of the train, powered by two battery modules, has taken place in conjunction with our trusted colleagues at Strukton and Valence, and we are all delighted with the results so far.  Work only began at the beginning of the year but these first successful runs show, once again, our initiative and the team’s continuing drive to innovate.
