Talgo Explores Options For Building UK Test Track

The title of this post is the same as that of this article in Rail Magazine.

This is the first paragraph.

A new UK test track, available to all companies, is being proposed by Spanish manufacturer Talgo as it looks to develop its standing in this country.

It is interesting that the ttrack will be available to all companies, but probably a sensible decision.

  • Hitachi have been testing some of their new Class 385 trains in Germany.
  • Porterbrook have been testing the new Class 769 train on the Grand Central, which is a herotage line.

So perhaps we do need another convenient test track!

As Talgo are bidding to make trains for HS2, the test track will probably need to be a bit longer than the thirteen miles of the cuirrent Old Dalby Test Track.
