STRATHCLYDE Partnership for Transport (SPT) took delivery of the first new train for the Glasgow Subway line on May 4.
It is one of 17 being built by Stadler/Ansaldo for the Subway, which are due to enter service in 2020.
The trains are capable of driverless operation and are the same length as the current ones, but made up of four vehicles rather than three, and have walk-though car ends.
The new delivery will be used for extensive off-line testing and training, with the next deliveries not due until the end of the year.
