Introducing our new trains

We're in the middle of the biggest fleet upgrade since the first train ran between London and Bristol 175 years ago.


  • Our new, longer, electric trains now run between London Paddington and Maidenhead.

    • free Wi-Fi, at-seat power sockets, air-conditioning
    • improved toilets
    • plenty of space for wheelchair users
    By Autumn 2017, we will have increased capacity in the Thames Valley by over 40%, meaning everyone will enjoy a more comfortable journey. In early 2018, we will extend services to Reading and Didcot Parkway. View our new London to Greenford, Heathrow Airport and Reading timetable.


  • We’re busy testing our new intercity trains right now. You’ll start to see them come into service later this year, with more joining by the end of 2018.

    • more seats, tables and legroom; plus, extra space for luggage
    • improved air conditioning, and window blinds
    • bigger and better toilets
    • improved passenger information and Wi-Fi throughout
    • new food and drink options

Our new trains will continue to help shape and support the region into the 21st century and beyond.
