Bombardier signs services contract in UK

Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation has announced that it has signed a new Train Services Agreement (TSA) with FirstGroup and Trenitalia for its new joint venture Avanti West Coast franchise in the United Kingdom which started operations on December 8. Under the new agreement, which lasts until December 11, 2022, Bombardier will maintain a fleet of 20 Bombardier class 221 diesel-electric multiple unit (DEMU) trains at its Central Rivers depot for use on Avanti West Coast mainline services. Each of the five-car trainsets will receive a comprehensive interior refresh and be fitted with an upgraded WiFi system at Bombardier’s Ilford depot.

The new agreement follows Bombardier’s previous role in maintaining the 125 mile per hour trains for the former Virgin Trains franchise. The contract is valued at £117 million GBP ($154 million US, €139 million euro).
