Super Voyager


A WORLD CLASS TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

The massive improvements in travel environment that the new Voyager trains bring, coupled with innovations in on-board entertainment and catering, will ensure that the CrossCountry travel experience becomes truly world class.

This will allow Virgin Trains to develop the missing business market on the inter-regional routes across the UK - as well as continuing to grow the more traditional CrossCountry leisure market.

Club Class

Every train will offer a Club Class coach which will provide CrossCountry business travellers with an at-seat service of complimentary food and drinks together with a high quality, audio entertainment system.

This service will also include complimentary newspapers, magazines and audio headphones. A 240 volt power socket has also been provided near every seat to allow laptops and mobile phones to be recharged.

Standard Class

The journey experience for customers choosing Standard Class will also be significantly enriched with the following features:

Class 220 Voyager and Class 221 Super Voyager

The fleet will be split into two sub-fleets:

The two train fleets will appear identical to passengers in both external and internal appearance. The only difference will be a tilting body on the Super Voyager fleet which will require heavier bogies - adding seven tonnes to each coach. The tilt mechanism will provide an additional six degree "lean" as the train corners and this will provide a gentler ride for passengers, whilst allowing curves to be taken safely at up to 20% faster.
