Disappointment as Chiltern Railways scraps hybrid train plans


Hiltern Railways has quietly scrapped its plans to introduce hybrid trains from London services after reports of “unacceptably poor” air quality in the area around Marylebone terminus, the Standard revealed.

The Arriva-owned operator introduced trial vehicles last year that used batteries in combination with a diesel engine to reduce emissions in city centers. However, the project has since been abandoned as the train is currently no longer in service. The company said increased costs meant the technology was no longer viable.
