Since when have the Class 322 units on the Leeds - Skipton etc routes being branded as 'Northern Electric' rather than 'Northern (Rail)'?

Fairly sure it is only very recently that the auto announcements have referenced it, but I can't see it being a new recording based on the fact the 08:32 Leeds to Forster Square still thinks it stops at Frizinghall :lol:

Probably since they recorded the new name when the Liverpool to Manchester services went over to 319 operation. They too are branded as "Northern Electric"

I think it was at the same time (or shortly after) the 321/322 units were refurbished and made 2020-compliant. I was on 321903 a few weeks ago and noticed the "Northern Electrics" scrolling on the PIS. However I also noticed signs pointing towards the old toilets were still up, with stickers pointing to the new toilet stuck below. You'd think whoever put them up could've taken the old ones down!

What strikes me more about the 321/322 refurb and new PIS is when approaching Shipley, after announcing the station the system immediately warns passengers to report anything suspicious. What are they trying to say about Shipley..... :D
