Hi Richard

The typical railways carriages known as 700 stock formed as 12 car units are shown in the photo captured at Blackfriars on 24th May 2016

On May 24, 700109 pulled into Blackfriars station to be presented to stakeholders and members of the media.

The first high-capacity Class 700 units, of which there are 15 now in the UK, will begin going into service between Brighton and Bedford in the next few weeks, says GTR.

Built in Germany, Siemens is supplying 115 Class 700 Desiro units – a mixture of eight and 12-car fixed-length trains – to GTR. The full fleet is expected to be in passenger service by the end of 2018.

A signalling first in the UK, the Class 700s will operate using ETCS overlaid with Automatic Train Operation (ATO) in central London through the Thameslink core.

55 12 Car and 60 8 Car Class 700's are to be built for Thameslink.
25 6 Car Class 701's are to be built for Great Northern.

30 5 Car Class 707's are to be built for South West Trains.

The empty carriage stocktrains  (ECS) will be seen at the Thameslink maintenance depot at Hornsey  and may be seen on the ECTS signalled stretch of the Hertford North line between Hertford North and Stevenage. Class 701 trains with 6 carriages will operate into Moorgate (restricted platform length)
