    going to Colchester from peterborough on the 4th april, with engineering works changing at Stowmarket. Will this get me a 90+Mk3s, or should I go on to ipswich? what are NXEA's mk3s like inside?

    If the line is split by engineering works, they tend to use EMUs at the LST end of the line and loco hauled sets on the Norwich end (so they can access Crown Point depot).

    Their Mk3s still have comfy IC70 seats. Plus a few new seats in place of luggage racks.

    That's not correct!

    They have new seats in place of old seats ;) The new seats have lifting armrests, which make them accessible for the elderly and disabled - they were a direct replacement of the IC70 seats- the luggage racks are still normal mk3 style!
