    Class 350/1 refurbishment

    I’m pretty sure the 350/4’s were ordered specifically for TPE but they were just added onto London Midlands order, which would make perfect sense as they are both from the same leasing company, I know this has been mentioned previously on another thread.

    Northern Unit Refurbishments

    I don’t know if this has already been mentioned but it appears Northern have changed the material they are using for the seats. I have just been on 156441 and it has not got the flat cloth like other refurbished units however it does have the same design but as moquette.
