First Greater Anglia Class 720 train accepted

Angel Trains has accepted the first of its new Class 720 Aventra trains from Bombardier Transportation, part of a £900 million procurement project for Greater Anglia.

Replacing the suburban fleets currently leased to the train operator, the new fleet of 665 state-of-the art vehicles will transform the passenger experience for thousands of commuters. With improved passenger features such as plug and USB sockets, air-conditioning, real-time information screens, improved accessibility, underfloor heating and passenger door safety features, the Class 720s will help provide a better travel experience for the future.

Angel Trains will now be working with Greater Anglia and Bombardier UK to bring the first of the trains into passenger service later this year.
