In May the first of Greater Anglia's Stadler Flirt 3 units will enter service. Already a favourite with enthusiasts the Swiss-built trains will revolutionise travel in East Anglia. Class 745 (top photo). 20 of these 12 car EMUs (the longest Stadler Flirt built) will be split into 2 sub-fleets. 10 with a Buffet and First Class will replace the Class 90 hauled mk3 sets on Norwich - Liverpool Street services. The other ten will be Standard Class throughout and provide Stansted Express services, releasing the Class 379s to work along side the Class 720 Aventras on Inner suburban "West Anglia" services. Class 755 (bottom photo). 14 x 3 car Standard Class BMUs and 24 x 4 car BMUs make up the rest of the Stadler fleet on GA. These will operate the rural lines of East Anglia and some London - Norwich services in multiple. They have a small power car that allows the train to switch, on the move, from OHL to diesel. Why a TS Version. The natural choice for new tech would surely be Train Sim World for these units but they would be of great use in TS too. According to reports from the drivers training on these things, they are wonderful to drive, lots of power, impressive acceleration (even in Diesel mode) and an amazing view through that large windscreen. They will be the only stock on the Wherry Lines route and Great Eastern Main Line will benefit hugely from their presence. Not only East Anglia though. South Wales Metro are getting a mixture of Diesel and Tri-mode examples which will be very useful on the South Wales Coast route.
