Our new Electrostar trains

Our new, longer electric trains now run from London Paddington to Maidenhead, Reading and Didcot Parkway. And we have increased capacity in the Thames Valley by over 35%*.

Extra comfort

Enjoy a better commute with air-conditioning, wider tables, reading lights, at-seat power sockets and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the train.

More accessible

All our Electrostars have at least two wheelchair spaces available, with access to a disabled toilet.

Plus, all our toilets are now easier to use, with baby-changing facilities included too.

Better storage space

Overhead racks are deeper and more luggage stacks at the ends of carriages, plus wall-mounted hooks to keep things safe.

Greener travel

Running on electric, our Electrostar trains keep emissions and noise pollution to an absolute minimum.
