TRAIN builder Hitachi has unveiled the first UK built commuter trains to be completed at its Newton Aycliffe factory. The trains made their appearance to the hit song, 'Right here, right now' by Fatboy Slim this morning. A fleet of 70 Class 385 trains will, say Hitachi, transform journeys for the ScotRail commuter routes, including Edinburgh to Glasgow. The Class 385 marks the first commuter train to be built by employees at Newton Aycliffe. Last year the facility produced its first intercity train which is now due to enter passenger service later this month on the Great Western route.
