Operator Grand Central has unveiled the first of ten revamped Adelante trains as part of a £9 million refurbishment programme.
The scheme includes a full interior refresh, new seats with leather edging in standard class, new floor covering throughout, exterior and interior repaint, upgraded catering facilities, refitted toilet facilities with disabled access and baby changing facilities. LED lighting and power sockets will also be installed.
Five newly acquired trains from Great Western Railway are included in the programme, which will continue throughout 2018.
Grand Central managing director Richard McClean said: “I’m sure passengers using this train will enjoy travelling Grand Central in greater comfort, in smart surroundings and with enhanced on-board facilities.
“We pride ourselves on listening to our passengers and taking on board their feedback. They’ve told us what is most important to them, and that’s why we’re investing £9million to improve the comfort and reliability of our entire fleet and services.”
