Great Northern’s Class 717s Under Test

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Global Rail News.

The title also says it all and it would seem that the aim of having Class 717 trains in service this year on the Northern City Line is feasible.

The article also says that twelve trains have been completed and another twelve are being built.

I suppose Siemens had an advantage, in that except for the end doors, they are probably very similar to the Class 707 trains.
