Trains | Northern Railway
CAF 195 & 331
Northern officially announced the introduction of new trains to serve the network like Blackpool. From Monday 9 September 2019, brand-new electric trains started to operate between Blackpool North and Liverpool Lime Street.
Then, later in the year more new trains were introduced on routes between Blackpool and York/Hazel Grove (via Bolton).
Blackpool is one of the first places in the North to benefit from Northern’s new trains and the state-of-the-art fleet that connects Northern customers with key towns and cities across the region.
£500m of new trains spent by Northern Rail reached Blackpool North early 2019.
These trains, built by CAF in Spain will bring forward state of the art diesel train sets onto the rail network.
98 of these trains will feature free Wifi, power for your devices, air conditioning and a reservation system.
