Class 222 Xplorer units are tilt enabled, 6-car DEMU sets built in 2000-2001 for use on the MEX Cross Country and Midland Mainline "shuttle" network.

Built to supplement the High Speed Train fleet, and replace traditional loco hauled services on routes spanning the UK, the 43 strong fleet was named after famous explorers and adventurers from around the globe.

As well as contributing to increasing capacity and frequency on the "core" MEX network, the Xplorer units also allowed for a new "Taktfahrplan" based timetable to be introduced across the Midland network.
