New train to begin running between Romford and Upminster

A new train has been introduced on the London Overground line between Romford and Upminster.

From today, the new Overground train which has changes to certain features, will be implemented. 

The key changes include a different colour at the front which has changed from yellow to orange.

Different LED lights have also been fitted to the train.

The new trains are also quieter so may sound different to the older trains.

As a result, Network Rail and Transport for London are reminding pedestrians using level crossings along the route to stay safe.

Network Rail’s route director for Anglia, Ellie Burrows, said: “The new trains will provide improved comfort and maintain reliability for passengers on this line.

“For our level crossing users, the new train will look and sound different so it’s important not to take any risks and to follow the signs, warnings and guidance at the crossing, as always.”

Transport for London’s General Manager for London Overground, Rory O’Neill said: “This new London Overground train looks different and is much quieter than the existing one, so we recommend care is taken to ensure the safe continued use of the pedestrian crossings on this route. 

“For our customers these new trains will help ensure a reliable service is maintained and will feature walk-through carriages, air-conditioning, live network information and improved accessibility.”
