Two more North­ern ‘195’ DMUs ar­rive at Edge Hill

Rail (UK) - - News -

North­ern 195109 and 195110 have been de­liv­ered to Edge Hill.

The three-car CAF diesel mul­ti­ple units were built in north­ern Spain and shipped to the UK for test­ing. They ar­rived at Port­bury Dock and were moved by road to the Mersey­side de­pot.

It brings the num­ber of Class 195s in the UK to eight, from an or­der for 55. Three two-car sets (195001-003) and five three-car sets (195103/105/107/109/110) are based at Edge Hill for train­ing and com­mis­sion­ing, with two sets due to en­ter traf­fic from De­cem­ber 19 ( RAIL 865), and a third set en­ter­ing ser­vice by the end of the year.

North­ern also has CAF elec­tric mul­ti­ple units 331001 and 331102 in the UK for sim­i­lar test­ing. These are likely to en­ter ser­vice early next year.
