  • The British Rail Class 700 is a class of electric multiple-unit passenger train built for Thameslink as part of the Thameslink Programme in the United Kingdom. A fleet of 60 eight- and 55 twelve- car trains are expected to enter service between spring 2016 and 2018. Associated rolling stock depots are being built at Hornsey and Three Bridges. The first train was delivered in late July 2015. In 2011 the consortium Cross London Trains (XLT) consisting of Siemens Project Ventures, 3i Infrastructure and Innisfree was announced as preferred bidder with Siemens to manufacture the trains. The decision was politically controversial as the trains are to be built in Germany, while the competing consortium led by Bombardier Transportation had a train factory in the UK. Both the procurement process and final close of contract were significantly delayed, resulting in the expected first delivery date moving from 2012 to 2016. The £1.6 billion contract to manufacture and provide service depots for the trains was finalised in June 2013. The first unit was introduced on 20 June 2016. (en)
