Alstom unveiled its proposed design for England’s HS2 Ltd. The train is designed to meet all of HS2 Ltd.’s requirements for a world class, modern and flexible train, which is as comfortable on the conventional network as it is on the new HS2 infrastructure.

Alstom has extensive high-speed rail expertise, from iconic train designs such as the TGV in France, Avelia Liberty in the USA and AGV in Italy, combined with 20 years’ experience working with Pendolino trains on the UK’s West Coast Mainline.

By integrating HS2 infrastructure and the conventional network from Scotland all the way down to the south of England, HS2 will become the critical driving force in revitalizing towns and cities all across the country, and especially in the midlands and the north, accordind to officials.

HS2 Ltd intends to make a decision on the rolling stock contract award in 2020. Alongside London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds, HS2 services will also serve destinations beyond the core network, including York, Newcastle, Liverpool, the North West, Glasgow, and Edinburgh.
