Bidders for the HS2 train contract have revealed computer-generated images of their proposed designs.

Alstom, CAF, the Hitachi-Bombardier JV, Siemens Mobility and Talgo have all released concept pictures after the deadline to submit bids was passed on June 5.

At least 54 ‘conventional compatible’ trains will be built as part of the estimated £2.75 billion contract, which also includes 12 years’ maintenance and the option for another 30 trains if required.

HS2 will now evaluate the bids received and announce the winner in the spring of 2020.
