TrainFX are delighted to announce the roll out of our new Passenger Information Systems with our full colour, LCD screens on-board the first set of Porterbrook owned class 158 vehicles running on Great Western routes. This is the first in a substantial roll out of LCD displays, so keep an eye out as they pop up across numerous fleets over the next few years!
Crisp, clear and clever.
A new generation of full colour, high definition screens displaying PRM TSI compliant messaging, extended passenger information, rich media content and marketing communications.
Our display screens don’t just look great, they are fully integrated with our real-time passenger information system and internet-connected to extend their capability even further!

At TrainFX we supply turnkey passenger information systems, saving you time and the headache of dealing with multiple suppliers and having to manage the integration of several independent systems.
Not only do the components of our PIS fit together perfectly, it is just as important to ensure that the system also fits perfectly to its environment, whether being retro-fit to a refurbished vehicle or installed in a brand new train-set. Given the diverse range of rolling stock in the market, and operators each having a unique set of needs and challenges to face. No single setup will work for everybody. A flexible approach isn’t just desirable, but essential!
Flexible design. Solid performance.
In delivering the best solution, we make our products fit your needs and circumstances.
Recently, we have worked with Porterbook to supply our advanced passenger information system across the class 323 fleet of 129 cars. Following a design review, it was determined that our system’s controller unit would not fit the space envelope available within the cab. TrainFX undertook to redesign the APISC to meet the customer’s needs.
Where systems provided by alternative suppliers might not be compatible or appropriate, our approach of combining a comprehensive system with a flexible design, means we are able to meet the needs of our customer.
That’s why TrainFX take pride in delivering a bespoke design service. We take the time to understand your key objectives, business needs, as well as the technical and physical requirements for your fleet.
Welcome to the new look TrainFX website!
In addition to the new contracts and systems we have been developing this year, we have also been hard at work developing our brand new website. Not a few tweaks or just a fresh lick of paint, but a complete re-imagining from the ground up.
With our redesign, we wanted to build a platform to explain and showcase our products, services as well as our values and approach in a way that is as innovative and forward thinking as the rail technology solutions we supply! Core to delivering the new web experience for our visitors is embodying the values of our company; it should be clean, accessible, responsive and a great communicator!
The site was developed in-house by the same media production team who bring our LCD screen content to life on board rail vehicles.

The 144e “evolution” was designed to demonstrate the possibility of breathing new life into the old 144 rolling stock and with it, the opportunity to showcase new technologies! Working with owners, Porterbrook, RVEL and a host of other suppliers, TrainFX have fitted the latest version of our Advanced Passenger Information System, featuring 2x double sided saloon displays and our new Intelligent Media Display System. They both feature an all new LCD design capable of full colour, high definition content, whilst ensuring PRM TSI compliance.
The 144e demonstrator is now in passenger service for Arriva Rail North.
