From 2018 this fleet of Class 802 Intercity Express Trains, which is being financed by Eversholt Rail, will connect London Paddington to Exeter, Plymouth, Penzance and many more communities.
The Intercity Express Train is also designed to withstand the region's variable weather conditions, including routes along the Dawlish coast. These new trains harness Hitachi's Japanese bullet train technology and will offer a step-change in the journey experience for passengers.
