A team of engineers who keep the current fleet of Greater Anglia trains running despite their increasing age has won national awards for making them more reliable.
The company won six rail industry awards for big improvements to train reliability so that they go further without developing faults, making them the most reliable trains of their category in the country.
The train operator received two ‘Golden Spanner’ awards for the Norwich – London Intercity and Stansted Express services, which are the most reliable trains in their class across the UK.
It’s the second year in a row that the company’s award-winning engineers have won the coveted Golden Spanner for the Intercity trains.
Four further fleets operated by Greater Anglia also showed improvements in reliability compared to the previous year and received ‘Silver Spanner’ awards for being the most improved in their class.
