It was reported on here a few pages back that the flat cloth was the same price as moquette.
150150 arrived at Doncaster Works yesterday for PRM mods - http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/K01032/2019/03/09/advanced
Have any Class 158/9's gone in for a refurb yet?
Yes, the first 158/9 to go for refurbishment (158904) is currently at Crewe.
Any idea when its due back?
170460 is the next Class 170 to head for a refurb at Crewe
Yes I saw that but was a reply to my post! Wake up at the back.
When did that arrive? I'm pretty sure I was on it a few weeks ago.
A month is a long time in politics...…….and stock diagramming.
I thought the same. No doubt that's a different part of the process and the unit will have to go off somewhere else to get a nicer floor
That's the same floor that all the refurbished 150s I've been on have got. It would be fine if Northern bothered to clean them properly every now and then.
Any news on redecorate and parked up 333 00I.
I hear that redecorating of 333 013 did not reach the cabs which weren't even cleaned. Not a good way to treat your people perhaps.
I got to travel home on 333013 this evening. Nice and bright and smart looking inside, and the moquette is definitely superior to the flat cloth. It wears the new livery well.
However, the seats are still just as uncomfortable due to the curved shape and 3+2 layout. That's when I eventually got a seat.
I await the 331s...
None of the refurbishment's include the cabs anymore, that was quietly dropped quite a few months ago now.
Evening all, does anyone have a complete list of all the transferred turbostars and sprinters that Northern have received from ScotRail please?
001 sat at the back of Neville Hill pan up this morning.
156447, 156449, 156 465, 156485, 156496
158782, 158786, 158789, 158867, 158868, 158869
Did any of them include cab refurbishment? I've not noticed any changes on units I've seen.
You will probably have to stand as the 4 car 331s have less seats (2+2).
158870 & 158871 need adding to the list
I'm on the refurbed 333013 this morning down Airedale. Rather a nice unit now, even if 3+2 Is less than ideal. Given the delay to the introduction of the longer 331s, these will do nicely in the meantime. Shame that they aren't putting charging points on the stock though!
But yes, bright, light and clean. Very nice, and the moquette looks good too. Now we just have to hope that Northern have a decent cleaning contractor (I'm not holding my breath) or these will start to look grubby very quickly!
EDIT: compared very favourably with the overcrowded and rather grubby 185 onward journey I can tell you.
Which service was it on this morning if you don't mind me asking?
06:40 Skipton - Leeds 07:23. Actually arrived on time too, which was a glorious rarity.
Cheers for that, I'm going to try and work out it's diagram for today in the hope I can pick it up on my way home!
I'm not sure I'm afraid.
Not sure if this has been noted already or not - the "see it, say it, sorted" announcements on 156486 (and possibly other units too) are now done by a male voiceover, but the same female voiceover still announced the service details.
If you're interested in when they arrived, I have a list on my blog.
It's out and about today
Cab work hasn't even been signed off yet. It is phase 3 of the refurb programme and is still at the consultation stage with the ASLEF cab improvement group.
Hmm. At this rate phase 3, whatever that includes, wont meet the end of the franchise.
