First Hull Trains

First Hull Trains acquired two Class 180 units to replace a damaged Class 222 Pioneer, which operated with the remaining Class 222s between London King's Cross and Hull. In 2008, the Department for Transport decided that First Hull Trains Class 222s should be cascaded to EMT and replaced with Class 180s by the end of 2008.The acquired units have undergone an internal refit including the installation of laptop sockets and new coffee machines. The first began operation in late January 2009. The refurbishment was completed in early 2011.

First Hull Trains currently, as of 25 June 2012, lease one Grand Central class 180 number 180101 to provide extra cover for breakdowns.

Famous quotes containing the word trains:

    Conventions, at the present moment, are really menaced. The most striking sign of this is that people are now making unconventionality a social virtue, instead of an unsocial vice. The switches have been opened, and the laden trains must take their chance of a destination.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)
