Our trains are getting a makeover

Our fleet of trains is getting a makeover! Starting with the Voyagers, improvements include new seat covers in First Class, new carpet runners throughout and some shiny red valences for the front of the trains. The toilets on the Voyagers and Pendolinos are also getting a new look with smart new graphics for the interiors, better lighting, improved litter bins and new door controls with an additional indicator and voice recordings which confirm to customers that they have correctly locked the toilet doors. 

Looks aren’t everything but we think our customers will also love the new LED lighting and refurbished tables and seat frames throughout our Pendolinos. In First Class, the arm rests are also being spruced up.

Not to forget the MK3 set, where we’ve refurbished vestibules, toilets, First Class saloons and The Shop. The saloons have new tables, curtains and wall coverings, while the toilets and vestibules have undergone a complete repaint with new sinks and floor coverings.

By mid-July, six of our Voyagers have had a makeover with one undergoing improvements every week.The Pendolinos follow suit with one train already completed and more lined up for the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for them and our special train sporting our new Fly Virgin campaign graphics.
