As part of a £320m project, we financed the purchase of 24 Class 802 Bi-Mode trains for TransPennine Express and Hull Trains.
The introduction of the Nova 1 and Paragon fleets marked a significant milestone which will see major cities in the North connected with new-build trains that can switch seamlessly between electric and diesel power.
Built by Hitachi, the Japanese-style bullet train technology reduces harmful emissions by 90%.
By procuring trains that are better for the environment and improve passenger experience, we are investing in a railway that will benefit rail travellers for generations to come.
