Work Is On To Launch New TPExpress Trains

Work is on track to bring new TransPennine trains to Middlesbrough - and here’s the proof.

Train company TransPennine Express who run intercity trains from the North East over to Manchester and Liverpool, has released an image of the first completed body shell from its brand new fleet of train carriages.

It's getting ready to launch the new trains to/from Middlesbrough with delivery of what the company says will be one of the country’s most modern train fleets, several of which are being built at the Hitachi Rail Europe factory in Newton Aycliffe.

Customers will begin to see the 13, five carriage trains running between Liverpool, Manchester, Huddersfield, Leeds, York, Scarborough and Middlesbrough from 2018. These, along with other new trains being delivered by TPE, will provide 20,000 extra peak seats per day.
