Modern high-speed trains such as Pendolinos, Adelantes, Voyagers and Meridians were built with retention tanks. Those train operators that utilise older British Rail designed, diesel-powered trains with Mark III coaches have not fitted toilet retention tanks, pending their replacement by new modern trains before 2020 as part of the Inter-City Express programme.
