Test trains for the new fleet of Intercity Express Trains on the Great Western Railway (GWR) in the South West have left Japan, heading for the UK.
The new train is for use on the line linking Paddington to Exeter and Cornwall via Reading and Newbury.
It is part of what GWR describes as the 'biggest fleet upgrade in a generation', aimed at reducing journey times and increasing capacity.
The Class 802 fleet is due to enter passenger service next summer.
