South Eastern franchise consultation Issue: New Rolling Stock

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Transport,

I would like to know if Southeastern will gain new trains in it's next franchise (December 2018-2023). The SE Consulation on your website doesnt clearly state if the South Eastern Franchise will gain any new trains to replace the ageing- rolling stock. Will the Class 465/466 Networkers which are used by Southeastern will ever be replaced with newer rolling stock.

Yours faithfully,


FOI-ADVICE-TEAM-DFT, Department for Transport
