Terry Cahill and Tom Lendhill of Hitachi Rail will provide insights into the challenges associated with maintaining GWR's IEP fleet as well as the design challenge of new high speed passenger trains for the future. We will spend a day in the life of an IEP maintenance engineer; then go on a journey through the various design, testing and acceptance stages that will enable the UK to facilitate the fastest operating speed of any high speed line in Europe.
