Elizabeth Line drivers use simulator for training

Drivers on the Elizabeth Line are using the latest technology to familiarise themselves with the train and the routes.

About 24 trains an hour will travel both ways on the new line which, will link 40 stations through London, connecting Reading in Berkshire and Shenfield in Essex.

The trains will come into operation on some parts of the route next year ahead of the official launch of the line in 2018.

The Elizabeth Line will be fully operational in 2019.
