Today saw the official unveiling of the first of Crossrail’s Class 345s, built by Bombardier in Derby. It would be rude, therefore, not to share with LR readers some photos of the new class in action.
Before leaping into photos and videos, it is worth pointing out that the internal fitting out is far from complete. The moquette is not the final design, nor have internal features been fully painted. Nonetheless, this represents a good opportunity to get a good feel for the new class, both within and without.

We would have been remiss, of course, not to take advantage of the opportunity to gaze around Bombardier’s yard. Below are thus a few more images and videos for our reader’s amusement.
And we will finish with a short videos of some shunting.
