Caledonian Sleeper’s new carriages get ever closer
Caledonian Sleeper’s new carriages made their first trial run to London Euston today ahead of their launch later this year.
The overnight rail service will begin operating its new fleet by the end of May 2019. We’re looking forward to trying out the new carriages.
The fleet, built at a cost of over £100m and part funded by a capital grant from the Scottish Ministers of £60m, has a range of accommodation options including:
Caledonian Double (double bed with en-suite)
Club Rooms (solo or twin with en-suite)
Classic Rooms (solo or twin)
Fully accessible rooms for guests with reduced mobility
Other new features will also be included, such as a hotel-style key card entry system, more accessible rooms, charging panels and WiFi throughout the train.
The trains will initially be introduced on the Lowlander route between Glasgow / Edinburgh and London before being rolled out onto the Highlander which serves Fort William, Aberdeen and Inverness.
