Truly built to last, each train in its lifetime will have clocked up over 955,600 miles, equivalent to the moon and back, twice. These trains would often travel 60,000 miles without fault or failure.
Connex EMU to make a return to Kent…
We are delighted to announce that 76398, 70904, 62385 and 76397 as Unit 3905 have found a new home at the East Kent Railway, Shepherdswell where it will be restored to operating condition.
The unit will arrive over the coming weeks along with a considerable spares float to keep it operational for many years to come.
An enormous amount of time and funding has gone into just the preparation work and transportation of the unit to its new home.
We are looking forward to working in conjunction with the East Kent Railway to return this unique unit to service and we hope all our followers will continue to support us in our future endeavours.
