22 photos of the new Thameslink Train
This is what Thameslink passengers will be riding in from sometime in 2016 as the first of the new trains arrive.
A mock-up of one which is essentially real, except that it has no wheels was put on display today for a few hours to have a look. And a set of wheels put on display next to it.
