Revised class 385 windsreens licenced. - Posted: June 30, 2018 - 1:01 PM Quote and reply
New electric trains for Scotland's central belt have been approved by rail regulators after their windscreens were replaced over safety concerns.
Train drivers' union Aslef had said the curved windscreen on the Class 385s were causing reflections of other signals at night.
New flat windscreens will now be fitted to all 70 of the trains.
The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) has confirmed the Hitachi trains are safe and licensed to carry passengers.
NR 29.06.18
