Fleet Portfolio

Eversholt Rail has a current market share of approximately one third of the UK passenger rolling stock leasing market. The Group's passenger rolling stock portfolio consists of 19 separate fleets comprising around 3,500 passenger vehicles, of which over 3,100 have electric motive power.

These fleets range from 75mph suburban Electric Multiple Units (EMUs) to 140mph high-speed intercity trains. The business also owns a significant number of the UK's most modern Diesel and Diesel-Electric Multiple Unit (DMU and DEMU) fleets. The combined diesel and electric fleet ranges from well–established rolling stock, that has benefited from continuing Eversholt Rail investment, through to some of the newest fleets introduced (Class 380s and 395s). Eversholt Rail's rolling stock fleets operate exclusively in the UK.

In addition to its passenger fleet the business also leases freight locomotives. Further information on each fleet can be found by clicking on each of the links below.
