The Anonymous Widower

A First Close-Up View Of A Class 745 Train

I was standaing on Stowmarket station and this Class 745 train came through.

These twelve section trains will replace stakes of Mark 3 coaches, sandwiched between a Class 90 locomtives and driving van trailers.


  1. When I first saw the train, I thought it was a Class 755 train., as they look so similar. So I had to read the plate between the trains to check.
  2. Unlike most UK trains the number on the cab is not a full number and just the last three digits.
  3. If you look at the top of the train, it appears that the energy bus appears to be along the middle of the roof.
  4. Like most modern trains, they were quiet. Does this suggest efficient aerodynamics.

It bcertainly appears that Stadler have a selectio of sections, that can be connected together to create the trains.
