New high-speed trains row may end up in court, minister tells MSPs | HeraldScotland
A ROW over new high speed trains could go to court, the SNP transport minister has said.
Humza Yousaf told MSPs that ScotRail and Hitachi may well turn to the law after problems emerged with the curved windscreens on the Japanese firm’s Class 385 electric trains.
Drivers have reported dangerous multiple reflections on test runs, delaying the trains’ start on the Glasgow-Edinburgh route and forcing ScotRail to source replacements.
Mr Yousaf said Nicola Sturgeon had personally intervened and received repeated apologies from Hitachi, which is making the 46 three-car and 24 four-car sets in north east England. New high-speed trains row may end up in court, minister tells MSPs | HeraldScotland
