More Trouble With AnsaldoBreda Trains

In an article eighteen months ago entitled; A Train Builder With Form, I talked about the poor performance of Denmark’s IC4 Trains.

It would seem that according to this article in Global RailNews, that the situation might be improving, although it is still not sorted.

The only relief for the UK, is that none of the trains on order are from  AnsaldoBreda.

Incidentally, as the performance of the IC4 trains are pretty similar to InterCity125s, if Denmark still needs some high speed diesel units in a few years, perhaps we could lease them a few nearly fifty-year-old InterCity125s to get them through until the date, that the lines are electrified.

On the other hand, we could use them on longer cross-country trips all over the UK network.
