First TransPennine Express

Manchester Rail Station

In May 2014 we worked with First TransPennine Express Trains and Manc Frank to support the launching of a new fleet of electric trains between Manchester and Scotland.

Electric Pedals created a customer engagement installation that used bicycle power to illuminate the sign, 'ignite the spark that signals change', activating the beginning of this new fleet. Gold medal cyclist Jason Kenny was on hand to power the installation and support the event as it moved from Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station, through Leeds, Sheffield and finally Liverpool. This project was so successful that we will continue working with First TransPennine Express at further stations.

This was another successful collaboration with the amazing Vivid Design Works.
