New Elizabeth Line Class 345 Train at Ilford Depot.The new trains are due to start service on TfL Rail from May 2017 replacing the current fleet of ageing trains currently on the route before being introduced on the line currently known as Heathrow Connect (Heathrow Express between Heathrow Central & Heathrow Terminal 4) in May next year and then eventually on all of the new line by December 2019. The new trains will initially be seven cars long from their introduction on TfL Rail but once all platforms works are complete in 2019 all trains on all Elizabeth Line routes will be nine cars long. The new trains will also be fully air conditioned and have on-board WiFi as well as useful real time information screens throughout all of the walk-through carriages.
