The first of the new Thameslink passenger trains have been shown off for the first time. 115 high capacity trains are being built as part of the Government-sponsored £6.5bn Thameslink Programme.
The trains will run on the current Thameslink route (Bedford - Brighton and Wimbledon loop) and new routes that will become part of a wider Thameslink network in 2018.
The new trains will start running in early 2016.
