National Express East Anglia procured 188 additional vehicles between 2009 and 2011. Abellio will deploy all these vehicles in the new franchise. However, it will not be renewing the leases on 36 older, low-capacity (ex-Stansted Express) vehicles. The future deployment of these vehicles is a matter for their owner (Angel Trains).
