East Midlands Railway introduces first of its new regional train fleet


East Midlands Railway (EMR) has introduced the first train of its new regional fleet. The Class 170 “Turbostars”,


which will initially run on the Robin Hood Line from Nottingham to Worksop, offer EMR’s regional customers a more modern and reliable experience with free Wi-Fi. East Midlands Railway managing


director Will Rogers said: “The introduction of our first 170 is an exciting milestone for us and a real boost for EMR Regional. “They offer passengers significant improvements and benefits, and will make journeys more comfortable and convenient. “It is fitting to name


the first train into service as ‘The Key Worker’ in honour and


to say thank you to everyone who has worked so tirelessly in recent months to support us all." With a different design to the


Class 15x fleet that they replace, the Class 170 trains offer wider doors positioned closer to the middle of the carriage, making it easier to enter and exit for passengers, and offer a more


accessible layout while also providing a choice of table seats. The Class 170s are also due to be significantly refurbished to include various upgrades such as power sockets, improved CCTV, enhanced information systems and better toilet interiors. To recognise the contribution


from EMR colleagues, as well as those in the wider transport sector and all other key workers keeping


Britain moving, EMR has named the first Class 170 to enter passenger service, 'The Key Worker'. Andrew Pritchard, principal


advisor of Transport for the East Midlands (TfEM), said: “We welcome the introduction of newer and better-quality trains to the East Midlands, and naming the train ‘Key Worker’ values the frontline staff across the region who have worked tirelessly and kept delivering.” The first 170 train will be joined


by a further two in early December. These units will be operating initially on the Robin Hood Line, before being rolled out more generally in 2021.


The Class 170s are the first trains on the EMR network to use the permanent East Midlands Railway branding


John Pye MD named as ‘one to watch’


Adam Pye, managing director of UK auction house John Pye Auctions, has been named as “One to Watch” by Lloyds Development Capital (LDC) as part of its Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders list. Now in its third year, LDC’s Top 50 aims to identify


the exceptional leaders of UK medium-sized companies and celebrate their tales of ambition, resilience, and innovation. The news comes hot off the heels of John Pye’s


highest recorded auction figures in its 52-year history, with a 79% sales increase compared to pre-lockdown, after handling some of the biggest cases in the fallout from Covid-19. Adam said: “I’m thrilled to have been identified as


‘One to Watch’ by LDC alongside some really fantastic business leaders. The list highlights the sheer amount of great work that is being done by medium-sized companies across the UK, so I feel honoured to be included. I’ve been director for 25 years and MD of John Pye for 16 years, and steered the firm through a number

of recessions and hard times, but I don’t think anyone has experienced a year quite like this. All business leaders across the globe have seen some real highs and lows so it's great to have something to celebrate.” In November, the company opened a temporary


second Scottish site, located in Newbridge to help meet increased demand from clients and customers in the run up to Christmas. It will enable John Pye to sell an additional 3,000 lots per week. Adam added: “As we move towards the end of 2020,


John Pye is busier than ever. We’ve cleared out more than 250 stores across the UK and handled a number of proceeds of criminal millionaire bankruptcies. It’s a sad fact of business that certain firms will struggle in times like these and it’s hard to see some of our long- standing retail clients go into administration. “However, we’re optimistic about the future.


Accolades such as the LDC top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders just further highlight how SMEs are the backbone of the economy.”
