The first of the new state-of-the-art Elizabeth Line trains, which will serve Ilford and Romford, have been unveiled by Transport for London (TfL).

The seven carriage, 160 metre long trains took to the test track in Derby on Friday.

The images show the carriages being built and computer generated designs of the seats inside.

In total 66 new trains will operate on the line, which will link Ilford, Seven Kings and Romford with central London and Heathrow Airport.

The new ‘Class 345’ trains will enter service in May 2017 on TfL Rail between Liverpool Street and Shenfield.

Val Shawcross, deputy mayor for transport, said: “These state-of-the-art trains will play a key role in London’s future - helping to deliver a modern, world class transport system through the new Elizabeth Line and enabling London’s transport network to cope as our population rises.

“Alongside the new and modernised stations they will serve, the new trains will transform travel across London and will make life better for millions of Londoners.”
