New Stadler built trains in operation on Stansted Express

Posted on in News

Greater Anglia have entered their brand-new Stansted Express trains into passenger service between London Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport.

Built by Stadler, the new, longer Stansted Express trains have 767 seats – an increase of 83% over the old 8-carriage trains currently operating the services.

Technical project manager for Stadler, Leandro Haggenmacher, said: “The start of the roll-out of trains for the Stansted Express route is a significant landmark, as we enter the final stages of the project to supply 58 new trains for the Greater Anglia network. We are very pleased to have reached this point, recognising the important role Stansted Airport plays in the regional economy, boosting economic growth and supporting jobs.”

The new trains are part of a massive investment in new Stadler by Rock Rail East Anglia and will be leased to Greater Anglia.
