    I'll take a guess at 158906?

    I'm pretty sure the 3 cars were PRM-ed first, I might be wrong though.

    I meant 33 units to refurbish, the PRM modifactions for the 158s are done

    I think the 3 car 158s still retain the old seats.

    Is 158790 at Crewe? It was reported around Leeds a few days ago still unrefurbished? Yet earlier reports suggest it was at Crewe?

    What remains to do with the Northern fleet is a difficult question as there were/are a number of different phases with different units at different stages.
    507021s excelent blog only lists PRMed and refurbed units as well units with wifi etc. The blog lists all the 3 cars and the 158/9s as having both PRM mods and refurb.
    My thoughts are Phase 1 PRM mods. Further phases: new livery, new carpets/ interior, seats, wi fi etc.
    The last phase I hear will be the drivers cabs which are sadly untouched.
    Interesting to see what the new management do.

    Well the 3 car 158s got their "refurb" before the new seat moquette was finalised and before the decision was made to install ironing boards so I personally don't really count them as having a refurbishment because of that.

    Any news on 150209 in Doncaster? Whether it's getting the full treatment, etc. And whether it's going to re-emerge with / without a toilet? Anyone in the know?

    With regards to interiors, 158 inconsistencies are noticeable but the 150s just take the bacon. There must be about ten different variants of PRMed 150 interior. Will some attempt be made to give the fleet a homogeneous look internally?

    Unwittingly travelled on a 158 the other day with new interior seats etc for the first time. Albeit I was only on it for 1/2 hour, it was comfortable.

    150222 on the wolverton to NH run
    150125 on the crewe to NH run
    150111 on the NH to Doncaster run, meaning all 150/1s have had PRM mods, leaving 150210 the last one to go.

    So is it a (small) net gain of serviceable units, meaning that there should theoretically be fewer short-forms next week?

    My guess is further refurb works (for those units that were unrefurbished but repainted) and/or the fitment of USB & WiFi.

    But yesterday I saw 150114 in the old livery (abellio), is that PRM modded?

    You sure about 150 222. I didn't know any 150s had gone to Wolverton who have been doing 156s and 323s.
