Description

The Class 800 AT300 is a bi-mode multiple unit built by Hitachi for Great Western Railway and London North Eastern Railway. They use electric motors for traction, but in addition to operating on track with overhead electric wires, they have diesel generators to enable them to operate on unelectrified track. Based on the Hitachi A-train design, the trains were built by Hitachi between 2014 and 2018. The trains were assembled at the Hitachi Newton Aycliffe facility from bodyshells shipped from Kasado, Japan.

As part of its production, the Class 800 is a part of the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) and is in the Hitachi AT300 product family. The respective train operating companies has also given the units separate branding; under Great Western Railway, they are known as Intercity Express Trains and under London North Eastern Railway, they are known as Azuma.

    Kato quality comes to the UK. An excellent runner and well worth the money.

    Superb. Quiet and smooth running at all speeds straight from the box. I have other Kato locos already on my Swiss layout so had no doubts about purchasing this item. Great value for money too in classy packaging. Hopefully more British outline to follow and if so, other manufacturers take note and watch out !
