    Glad to see 001 out and about, especially after seeing a 322 struggling at Guiseley yesterday morning with power. They've brought a lot of relief to the EMU workings but like the 321s are starting to struggle. Finally caught 013 this afternoon, twice as it happens and I have to say its a nice job. And yes, the new seat covers are moquette!!

    I was on the 17:41. For a moment I thought that was me walking down the platform, but on closer inspection, no it's not!

    With redecorated 333 001 and 013 back in traffic are there any at Holbeck undergoing work?

    Per post 28, 333011 went to Holbeck on 25 Feb. Not sure if any others are out?

    I think that's the only one out, it looks like only at a time are being done.

    I'm on 333001 again this evening. It does look good, inside and out.

    Presumably most passengers either:

    a) Haven't noticed the difference

    or

    b) Think it is a new train

    I've seen 13 out and about a few times this last week but it seems to have escaped being allocated to the 1703 Leeds-Ilkley to date!

    The Full interior refurbishments make me wonder why they never got full interior refurbishments (mainly new seat covers) when they were re-painted into the the red and blue livery in 2009.

    Was it actually a repaint, though, or just some stickers over the top?

    I just used re-paint because re-liveried just sounded weird (i'm not dumb, I know it's vinyl) but either way the previous Franchise under Serco-Abellio never changed the seat covers to the dark Blue covers with white stripes when the 333s received their current red and blue livery. And Does it matter that I used re-paint?
