Commuters travelling into London Euston from Watford can benefit from new electric overground trains.

Transport for London (TfL) has unveiled a fleet of overground trains fron the Watford to Euston Line, which will be launched in November.

In total, 54 new “Class 710” trains will be created and will initially run on the Gospel Okay to Barking route.

They will then be brought onto the Watford to Euston route and on services out of Liverpool Street to Cheshunt, Chingford and Enfield Town.

A TfL spokesperson said: “The new London Overground trains will enter service on the Gospel Oak to Barking route first.

“Once we are satisfied they are operating reliably we will start introducing them to the Watford to Euston route and we hope to start this roll out programme by the end of the year.”

The trains are being designed and built by Bombardier Transport in Derby and will be operated by Arriva Rail London (ARL) on behalf of TfL.

TfL says the trains are made from “strong but lightweight” material which will make them more energy efficient.

Final approval of the work carried out by Network Rail to make the Gospel Oak to Barking route live was completed last week.

Jonathan Fox, director of rail and sponsored services at TfL, said: “Our new state-of-the-art British built London Overground trains will be an exciting addition to London’s transport network and help boost capacity on some of the most busy and popular lines.

“Over the summer, the new trains will undergo final rigorous testing and drivers will complete extensive training. We are now planning for the first trains to enter passenger service on the Gospel Oak to Barking route by November.”
