Further Information:

With growing passenger numbers and ageing fleets, there is an established need for new rolling stock in the UK. With larger orders recently placed and more on the way, this one day event provides a strategic review of rolling stock needs and procurement processes. Attendees will receive all the latest information and timelines on recent and upcoming procurement, in addition to considering key issues which could affect the delivery of new rolling stock.

Through strategic discussion, hear and utilise the expertise of those that are currently involved, or have recently completed the procurement process to take away lessons for future procurement. Attendees will also explore the long term view of the industry including what Brexit might mean for previous passenger number predictions and the impact of this on rolling stock needs.

Attend to evaluate the cost benefits of fleet life extension and associated maintenance costs in comparison to purchasing new trains to help determine the most appropriate options for your fleet. Consider essential issues to help ensure your fleet is prepared, with updates on electrification, ETCS fitment and the delivery of infrastructure upgrades, to ensure you know the expected timelines and how this will impact your plans.
