UK Rolling Stocks Green & Expansive Future

As part of COP26 and climate change commitments, UK rail can look ahead to a strategic focus on the removal of diesel engine powered trains and the introduction of battery technology to new and retrofit trains. Battery and hydrogen power will together play a great role in helping crucial transport infrastructure not only serve our communities, but also look after our environment.

Encouragingly, there has also been a recent expansion in UK onshore rolling stock manufacturing to meet current and future needs, adding good social value to the UK through increased ‘Made in Britain’ products throughout all levels of the supply chain.
