Class 390 Bodyshells Ashchurch Army Depot 22 July 2001

What is the most unusual location to see a Class 390 Pendolino? How about inside the Army Depot at Ashchurch! Three brand new bodyshells, including a DMRF driving car are propped up on stands inside the army camp on 22 July 2001. These bodyshells were constructed in Italy by Fiat Ferroviaria, and were en-route for final assembly at Alstom, Washwood Heath.
