In December 2009, a ceremony was held in London to mark the opening of a new railway.
Class 395 railcars built and supplied by Hitachi were the focus of this ceremony attended by British Government officials including the Prime Minister, the Transport Secretary and people connected with the project from the UK and Japan.
The Class 395s were the first high speed railcars in the UK, the country where railways originally evolved. This is a digest documentary video of the process to the operation of this service and the future outlook interspersed with interviews with those involved in the project.
