Stansted rail upgrade celebrated by National Express

National Express East Anglia (NXEA) is continuing to make good progress with the introduction of new trains on its key Stansted Express route as part of the company’s Service Improvement Plan, with the majority of services between Liverpool Street and the Airport now operated by new Class 379 trains.To mark the continued introduction of the new trains in passenger service, one of the four-carriage Class 379 electric trains was named ‘Go Discover’ by Nick Barton, managing director of Stansted Airport in a ceremony staged at the airport this week. The 30 four-carriage Class 379 trains are manufactured by Bombardier Transportation and all 120 carriages will be in service this summer on NXEA’s Stansted Express and West Anglia network. The trains feature air-conditioning, wi-fi and fully-accessible high-standard passenger accommodation. Some of the Class 379 trains are also providing key commuter services between Cambridge and Liverpool Street.
