In partnership with KeTech systems, Hull Trains trialled the screens last year before making the decision to install them on every train after positive feedback from passengers.

The screens display live real-time train running information, fed from the national Darwin system, so that passengers can view precise arrival and departure times as well as information from connecting stations and services.

Supplementary information is also available for passengers including departure boards when approaching interchange stations, London Underground status updates and weather conditions at destinations.

“The supply of real-time running information data during journeys is a significant step forward in terms of passenger information and customer service,” says Mr Jon Plowright, head of engineering at Hull Trains. “The state-of-the-art equipment is an innovative solution to meeting the information needs of today’s customer.”

The project is a collaborative scheme involving various partners including Hull Trains, Association of Train Operating Companies (Atoc), Angel Trains, Alstom, KeTech and Icomera.
