Rail (UK) - - News -

Tran­sPen­nine Ex­press Mk 5As are be­ing stored at Crewe South Yard by Rail Op­er­a­tions Group, ahead of their en­try into traf­fic.

The stock has been based at Longsight de­pot, al­though there are space con­straints ow­ing to the num­ber de­liv­ered to the UK (40 out of 66 coaches or­dered), and the fact that their en­try into ser­vice has been de­layed from De­cem­ber un­til next spring ( RAIL 866).

So far, 35 of the 40 in the UK have been moved to the North West for com­mis­sion­ing, test­ing and mileage ac­cu­mu­la­tion.

With that work on­go­ing, TPE 68022 Res­o­lu­tion took Trailer First (TF) 11502, Trailer Stan­dard (TS) 12704-706 and Driver Trailer Stan­dard (DTS) 12802 to Crewe on Novem­ber 15.
