D-Train to carry passengers to rail conference (Rail Magazine)
Visitors to Rail Live 21-22 June 2017 will be able to travel by train right to the show, courtesy of Vivarail’s D-Train. Passenger shuttles will run between Honeybourne station and a special platform inside the showground at the Quintin Rail Technology Centre (QRTC).
This will be the first time the Class 230 has been in passenger service. The prototype ‘230’ was built and tested at QRTC, and this will be a unique opportunity to ride the train on-site.
“Vivarail is delighted to be able to show off our train to the many passengers at Rail Live,” said Vivarail Chairman Adrian Shooter.
The Vivarail team will be out in force throughout the show to talk about the prototype DMU and the new battery test train.
