Listen to this article

First Capital Connect (FCC) has announced a £31 million overhaul of its fleet of Class 365 trains.

ROSCO Eversholt Rail Group, who lease the trains to FCC, will be funding the programme, which is expected to be completed by 2017.

Work will be carried out at Railcare’s depot in Wolverton to renew the trains’ interiors and improve accessibility.

The first of the modernised vehicles is expected to return to service by the end of the year.

David Statham, managing director of First Capital Connect, said: “Everything our passengers tell us shows that a clean and comfortable travelling environment is important to them.

“This major investment in one of our biggest fleets of trains will give us just that – a brighter, new-look train cabin with better information and better facilities for people with disabilities.”
