The new crossrail train has launched from Liverpool Street

The new Crosstrail trains have launched this week as the first passengers tried them out.

The Elizabeth line train is hoping to connect more of the UK, making it easier for commuters to get into the centre of London.

The train travelled from Liverpool Street to Shenfield as it tested the launch.

However, the tunnels that go under London will launch in December next year.

The new trains have a lot to boast about when it comes to changing the way Britons travel.

They include CCTV and free wifi with 4G connection, which is set to revolutionise modern train travel.

They will have nine carriages which are all fully connected for travellers to pass between.

Holding up to 1,500 passengers, the new routes will provide more train transport for all of the UK.

The £14.8 billion Crossrail project began in 2009 and has suffered delays since, but is eventually predicted to carry 200 million passengers per year when it launches.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, spoke out about the new trains: “I’m delighted that our first state-of-the-art Elizabeth line train has entered service on the TfL Rail service.

“It gives Londoners a first look at a new service that will transform travel across London and the south east when the line opens.”

London’s Transport Commissioner, Mike Brown, stated: “The trains are a great showcase of British design and manufacturing with air-conditioning, interconnected carriages, improved customer information and dedicated space for wheelchairs.”

It’s not the only train modernisation that could enter the UK in the future.

The Hyperloop trains could one day connect London and Edinburgh in just 50 minutes.

Luton Airport has also announced its new transportation service.

The slow bus shuttle service will soon be replaced by faster train shuttle.
