TfL have provided a 'sneak peek' into their new trains, which will be coming to Reading in December.

The company will soon be running the stopping services between Paddington mainline and Reading ahead of the service becoming part of the Elizabeth line.

The services, currently operated by Great Western Railway, will be operated as TfL Rail from December 15 when it becomes the Elizabeth line, which opens through central London.

Reading Chronicle:

Many readers responded positively to the news, which was posted to The Chronicle Facebook page last week, but some expressed concerns about the lack of toilets on the new trains.

One said: "These trains will not have toilets on board."

TfL confirmed that there won't be toilets on the trains due to space and displace the approximate 600 passengers per hour.

Some were pleased to hear about the new trains, with Aaron Dias-Jayasinha posting: "Woo! Reading on the up!

"Means my property will be worth more now", while John Seto said: "It'll be interesting see how many people will jump onto a non-stop service with a contactless payment."

A spokesman from TfL said: "The trains are fully accessible with dedicated wheelchair spaces on each train, which are close to the doors and separate from multi-use spaces for buggies, luggage and bicycles. In addition, there will be dedicated and clearly distinguished priority seats.

"Large clear areas around the doors will allow quicker and easier boarding and alighting and a mixture of metro and bay seating will be available through the train, providing choice and comfort for customers.

"The trains are driver operated and will use intelligent lighting and temperature control, regenerating electricity back into the supply when braking to use up to 30 per cent less energy."
