An extensive programme of testing and commissioning will soon begin on one of the two Stadler-built trains, which made maiden voyages into Canton depot, Cardiff a fortnight ago. The testing stage will be undertaken entirely on the Wales & Borders network, paving the way for trains to be handed over to the client and enter commercial service in 2022. The trains form part of the 35-strong fleet of trains that Stadler is manufacturing and delivering for Transport for Wales.
Four-car DMUs 231 002 and 004 arrived in Cardiff Canton depot on 19 November 2021.
