Industry representatives who have inspected the InterCity Express Programme (IEP) Mock Up include; ASLEF, TSSA & RMT, CTC, Sustrans & Cycle-Rail Working Group, Members of the Young Railway Professionals, ORR, NoBo Interfleet and Lloyds Register, Passenger Focus, First Great Western, Inter City East Coast, bidders for the East Coast Franchise, Transport Scotland, Network Rail, ATOC, the NAO, Rail Future, the Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), British Transport Police (BTP) and groups representing passengers with restricted mobility, the blind and partially sighted.

I also had the pleasure of inspecting the IEP Mock Up on 15 October 2014, where I met with DfT Officials, Hitachi Directors, the Design Agency and a group of young transport professionals embarking on their career in engineering. I satisfied myself that the design of the IEP has been an inclusive and collaborative approach reaching out to very many in industry and across the wider transport community.
