Eversholt Rail Group awards ETCS First in Class Contract to Alstom

December 2015

Eversholt Rail has placed a contract with Alstom’s signalling business SSL to fit the European Train Control System (ETCS) to its Class 365 fleet. 

The fitting of ETCS to the fleet is required as part of the Network Rail programme to roll out the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) across the UK network. This move to in-cab signalling brings significant opportunities to reduce the total cost of railway operations and is a step-change in the way the railway will be operated and maintained.
 
A National Joint ROSCO Project (NJRP) has been established to deliver the trial fitment of ETCS to each of the affected fleets in the UK – the First in Class (FiC). Eversholt Rail’s Class 365 is the first fleet to have its FiC contracted.
 
The Class 365 FiC design process will commence shortly with fitment, integration and reliability testing planned for 2017 before conversion of further units in the Class 365 fleet prior to full ETCS operation on the East Coast Main Line.
 
The FiC modification will be completed at Alstom’s Wembley Traincare Centre in close collaboration with the project team that includes Eversholt Rail Group, Alstom and Govia Thameslink Railway Ltd.

Eversholt Rail is one of the three major train owning companies working together through NJRP to deliver ETCS to UK passenger fleets.
