Class 700 Exterior Deatails

In January 2014 we displayed photographs of mock-ups of the interiors and certain external features when on display at Excel Docklands. The publicity launch and subsequent inaugural run on 24th May 2016 presented the opportunity to record details of the real thing.

This is the first of two pages of exterior details of unit 700109, for interior details please click here.
