First-built Mk 5As en­ter traf­fic

- TransPennine Express · Czech Republic · United Kingdom

The first-built rake of CAF Mk 5As has en­tered traf­fic with Tran­sPen­nine Ex­press, more than 30 months after it was un­veiled to the me­dia at the Ve­lim test track in the Czech Repub­lic.

Set TP01, formed of Trailer First (TF) 11501, Trailer Stan­dard (TSO) 12701-703 and Driver Trailer Stan­dard (DTS) 12801, fi­nally car­ried pas­sen­gers in the UK at the be­gin­ning of Novem­ber.

This leaves three rakes (TP02/03/05) left to en­ter rev­enue-earn­ing traf­fic, as well as spare DTS 12814.
