Rock Rail West Coast, which features in abrdn’s infrastructure portfolio, is putting train travel on a whole new track. 

On routes throughout the UK, it’s replacing old diesel rolling stock with state-of-the-art electric fleets that are quieter, greener and more energy efficient.

The new stock also offers free WiFi, reduced journey times, and easier access for those with reduced mobility. All designed to get more people out of their cars and onto the train.
