The ORR has contacted Stadler to approve their application to bring Class 755/4s into service.
This will see 755401 – 755424 into passenger service on the East Anglian route.
The conditions of the authorisation are that the trains are not to be operated until Greater Anglia has an S-stage Summary of Compatability in place.

Greater Anglia is the first train operating company to introduce the Class 755s in service.
The 755s are going to replace Class 153, 156 and 170s used by GA, as well as a Class 37-hauled trains.
The 755s will be maintained by Greater Anglia at their Norwich Crown Point depot.
