Class 395 - Javelin

The Class 395 is the first High Speed commuter train in the UK and part of Hitachi’s family of AT300 units. Its introduction to HS1 in 2009 continues to be a success story and it has set new standards for performance in High Speed trains in the UK.

The first units were delivered some 9 months early, with the entire fleet supplied to programme and entering service in December 2009. The layout of the interior provides a premium environment, with increased legroom for every passenger and special features designed for high-speed commuting.
