Siemens will deliver 1,140 commuter rail carriages to the British capital. This is the largest order that Siemens has ever won in Great Britain and one of the biggest orders for Siemens’ global rolling stock business. The first trains will enter service in 2016.
The Thameslink north-south commuter route runs through London, connecting Bed-ford, located to the north east of the capital, with Brighton, on the south coast. Introducing a high capacity, high frequency service of longer trains, extended platforms and new stations, the project is regarded as one of the largest rail infrastructure projects in the UK.
