A powerful new cleaning tool in the fight against the spread of coronavirus has been unveiled by London Northwestern Railway this week.

The operator – along with sister company West Midlands Railway – has rolled out new state-of-the-art ‘fogging’ machines to its cleaning teams.

The machines create a mist which kills bacteria but is harmless to people. They are now being used on hundreds of train carriages across the rail network.

The hand-held ‘foggers’ can sanitise an entire train carriage in just a few minutes, including hard-to-reach corners. The foggers will mostly be used in depots overnight but can also be used by mobile teams at stations where needed.

Lawrence Bowman, deputy managing director of London Northwestern Railway, said:

“The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is our top priority. These new machines are an important part of the enhanced cleaning regime we have put in place at our stations and on our trains.

“We have also recently stepped up our timetable to provide more capacity on the network and we are running longer trains to allow more space.

“We’re urging our customers who need to travel to help with social distancing by travelling at quieter times if possible and by wearing a face covering at all times.”
