    Greater Anglia now have the first of their Stadler Flirt Class 745 InterCity trains in service.

    These trains are being used on the London (Liverpool Street) - Norwich InterCity service.

    This film shows one of these trains passing Ilford Depot on the Great Eastern Main Line, on a sunny afternoon on 10th January 2020.

    Also seen are some of the trains the new trains will replace - push-pull InterCity trains which use Class 90 electric locomotives with British Rail Mk3 passenger carriages and a driving van trailer.

    Observant viewers will note different trains in the background - the Class 345 arrived here (blocking the view of the Class 315) after I filmed the older trains and before I filmed the new train!
