New Metro fleet testing

Testing our new fleet 

The next step in the process of getting our new train fleet into service is testing on the Metro network during the day. 

The trains are regularly out testing during the night, but now you might also see them out on Metro tracks in daylight hours.

This is an exciting time for Metro but, although the trains will stop, please do not attempt to board them as they are not in customer service.

To find out more about our new trains, go to Metro's new train fleet page.

You can keep up to date with everything relating to our new fleet on our You Tube playlist.
