Our Fleet

If you’re as crazy about trains as we are, you’ll enjoy these facts

Lumo trains at a glance

Our fleet of 5, 5 carriage trains built by Hitachi Rail Ltd., procured through Beacon, is an entirely new Cl 803 electric only train based on the Hitachi AT300 platform.  

Working closely with our key partners we have added a few thoughtful touches to the interior of our trains, with your safety and comfort in mind we have: 

  • designed an entirely new seat which optimises leg room and the tilt of the seat to give you a comfortable seating position;
  • designed a larger seat back tray table to balance all your essentials on during your journey;
  • ·optimised the location of the power and USB sockets so they’ll be no more scrabbling around under your seat for a plug point to keep your electricals charged!*
  • put in an additional reading light in, should you need it;
  • lowered the glare from overhead lights by toning the temperature of the light down for your comfort, an extra special touch if you are on an early train and trying to catch a few zzz’s!

We also offer free onboard WiFi and infotainment to keep you connected, informed and entertained throughout your journey.  

*Please do not use them for anything other than mobiles/tablets/laptops - using a hairdryer might blow the circuits! 





Train facts and figures

Our trains arrived from Japan as empty bodyshells and were assembled at Hitachi’s Newton Aycliffe factory.  Every train was put through rigorous factory testing, safety and quality inspection programmes before being allowed on to the tracks for further testing and commissioning.
