Public showcase and new train roadshow

First Capital Connect, with the Department for Transport and Siemens staged a public showcase of the new train using a full-sized mock-up of two carriages at London’s ExCeL centre in January 2014.

Watch the video above to see what some of our guests thought about the train, and about how the Thameslink Programme will transform travel in and across London.

After the public showcase, the Thameslink Programme team took a model of the mock-up to 18 stations on the network.

The stations we visited were: St Pancras International, King’s Cross, Blackfriars, London Bridge, City Thameslink, Bedford, St Albans, West Hampstead, Peterborough, Cambridge, Stevenage, Hitchin, Brighton, East Croydon, Sutton, Luton, Farringdon and Gatwick Airport.
