Update 17 June 2018 I asked KeolisAmey for some details of the trains to run through Ludlow. Here is the response: 1) What model of trains will you be running on the line from Cardiff through Ludlow to Shrewsbury and further north? How will these be powered? We will run brand new CAF Civity Diesel Multiple Units, built in Newport. They will feature state of the art passenger provisions, with reduced noise compared to the trains they are replacing. 2) What is the planned date for the introduction of this model of train? These new trains will be introduced between July 2021 and May 2022, replacing existing trains and providing additional services such as direct services to Liverpool.
