Refurbishment programme part of £40 million investment pledge to improve current fleet

Virgin Trains will pass the halfway point in its fleet improvement programme on the east coast when the twenty-third train to be completely refurbished rolls out of Craigentinny, Edinburgh, at the weekend.

The new-look trains include luxurious leather seats and mood lighting in First Class and stunning red cloth seats in Standard, providing a new lease of life to the trains and extra comfort for customers.

The refurbishment programme, which also includes new carpets and fittings, is part of a £40 million- pledge Virgin Trains made when it started operating on the east coast.

David Horne, Virgin Trains’ Managing Director on the east coast, said: “Since Virgin Trains launched services on the East Coast in 2015 we have committed more than £40m to improving our existing fleet for customers. We’re excited to be at the halfway point of our dedicated refurbishment programme, and pass another milestone on our journey towards totally transforming travel for our customers on the east coast.”
