Background

Founded in 2012, Vivarail's primary objective has been to build a new type of passenger rolling stock for urban, commuter and rural railways across Britain, based on conversion of former London subway trains (D78) into ground-breaking Class 230 D-Trains.

Vivarail is led by retired Chiltern Railways chairman Adrian Shooter and includes a development team with a combined 200+ years' experience in railway engineering and operations.

Vivarail is based at a rail-connected site in central England with full manufacturing facilities and a dedicated 4km test track.

In August 2014, RDC purchased a 50% interest in Vivarail in association with its management team.

The Class 230 DEMU prototype made its debut operating as a special shuttle service from Honeybourne to Long Marston for visitors attending the Rail Live 2017 event. The middle car demonstrated a range of seating options, spacious toilet, WiFi and USB sockets.
