Prototype information

The "Hitachi Super Express" is the winner of the Department for Transport's competition for the UK's next generation High Speed Train, and is expected to enter service on the Great Western Main Line in 2016. Plans for a diesel version have been shelved as EU emission laws make it more economical to electrify lines than to develop high-speed diesels.
