More Mk 5s for the Far North?

Rail (UK) - - News -

Cale­do­nian Sleeper Chair­man Peter Stra­chan says there is the pos­si­bil­ity of more Mk 5s be­ing or­dered, should plans for the Far North Sleeper get the go-ahead ( RAIL 831).

How­ever, he said that ser­vice would likely need rev­enue sup­port from Trans­port Scot­land. And should there be an or­der for more stock, TS would need to help fund them.

There is also the op­tion to con­tinue us­ing the ex­ist­ing stock, with Stra­chan ac­knowl­edg­ing that the price could be cheaper be­cause there is likely lit­tle fur­ther use for the Mk 2/Mk 3 fleet when the new stock ar­rives.
