Background

Set No.800 004 comprising PDTRBFO, MCO, MSO, MSO and PDTSO


A logical design progression from the hugely successful Class 395 Javelin, Hitachi's Intercity Express Programme Class 800/801/802 stock, is set to run the length and breadth of Great Britain; from Penzance to Inverness, Liverpool to Yorkshire's East Coast. Hitachi's pioneering bi-mode (dual electric/diesel) technology, designed to technical specifications laid down by the Department for Transport, gives the Class 800 the flexibility to run on a variety of lines, on gradients up to 1:37 and with differing lineside infrastructure, as well as being adaptable to future transport planning and passenger demands.


The Intercity Express Programme was developed to increase capacity into London termini during peak times, with original calculations predicting that the Hitachi trains would boost capacity by up to 40% going into Paddington during the morning rush hour period. The passenger service roll-out will commence on the Great Western Main Line with thirty-six Class 800/0 five-car sets, initially on services to Bristol and South Wales and the fleet will then be expanded in 2018 with twenty-one Class 800/3 nine-car sets that are being converted by Hitachi Rail Italy from the original order of Class 801/2 sets. These will then be joined on the London to Devon and Cornwall services by thirty-six AT300 (Class 802) five-car sets, separately financed by GWR through Eversholt Rail and again manufactured by Hitachi Rail Italy at its Pistoia manufacturing facility.


Hitachi's rolling stock for the Intercity Express Programme under the GWR franchise is split between two classes; the Class 800 bi-mode, powered from either the 25kV Overhead Electric Supply or the internal MTU 12V 1600 R80L engines, or the AT300 (Class 802) bi-mode, powered from either the 25kV Overhead Electric Supply or from upgraded internal MTU 12V 1600 R80L engines that deliver 940hp per engine, as opposed to the 750hp of the Class 800. The classes are then split into sub-classes, depending on train length, but all types are referred to as Intercity Express Train (IET) under the current GWR franchise operator.


Cleared to enter revenue earning passenger service on October 11, 2017, the five-car Class 800/0 has a seating capacity of forty-five in First Class, with 270 in Standard Class and is made up from a standard driving car, two standard motor carriages, a composite motor carriage and a First Class driving car. Running as both five-car and nine-car sets, trains can be extended up to a maximum of twelve cars, with a maximum total multiple length of 312 metres, although it is expected that five, nine and ten car sets will be the usual diagrams.

The Class 800 Super Express is a type of electro-diesel train used in the United Kingdom, based on the Hitachi A-train design. They have been built by Hitachi since 2015. The first units entered service on the Great Western Main Line (GWML) in October 2017 and will enter service on the East Coast Main Line (ECML) from December 2018. These trains are being assembled at the Hitachi Newton Aycliffe facility, alongside the related Class 801 electric multiple unit, from bodyshells shipped from the Kasado plant in Japan; no body construction takes place in the UK.
