Mark 4

Mark 4 coaching stock is on lease with London North Eastern Railway and Transport for Wales Rail Services. 

The coaches are purpose-designed for longer-distance services.  Currently operating with the 125mph Class 91 electric locomotive and Mark 4 Driving Van Trailer, the Mark 4 coaches have operated in passenger service with other electric locomotives, including the 110mph Class 90.   

The Mark 4’s physical and electrical interfaces also facilitate integration with a number of other diesel and bi-mode locomotives. 

There are 302 vehicles in the Mark 4 fleet with 7 different passenger vehicle types. 

The recent high-specification investment in the coaches has included an interior refresh and all modifications required to make the Mark 4 fleet TSI PRM compliant.
