The British Rail Class 195 Civity is a class of diesel multiple-unit passenger train manufactured by CAF for Eversholt Rail Group and currently operated by Northern Trains. A total of 58 units have been built; 25 two-car units and 33 three-car units. The class is almost identical to the Class 331 also produced by CAF, which is the electric version of the Class 195, differing only in traction type and (in some units) vehicle formation. The units were originally due to enter service in December 2018 alongside the Class 331 units, however, they were instead first introduced on 1 July 2019 under previous operator Arriva Rail North on the Manchester Airport and Liverpool Lime Street via Warrington, and Manchester Airport to Barrow-in-Furness routes. All units are expected in service by June 2020 and will work across all non-electrified routes across the Northern network.
