Virgin Trains has completed its fleet refurbishment programme, which involved a £40m investment in its set of 45 High-Speed and InterCity 225 trains in the UK.
As part of this £140m programme, all Virgin Trains on the east coast route have been refurbished with £21m spent on new interiors.
The new-look interiors feature leather seats and mood lighting in First Class and red cloth seats in Standard.
Virgin Trains east coast managing director David Horne said: “Since we launched services on the East Coast mainline in 2015, we have committed more than £40m to improving our existing fleet, to give customers the best possible experience when they travel with us."
The refurbishment programme also includes new carpets and fittings, revamp of a total of 410 carriage interiors, in addition to replacement of 24,427 seats.
The completed refurbishment arrives ahead of the launch of Virgin Trains’ new Azuma fleet next year.
Stagecoach and Virgin teamed-up to operate the East Coast and West Coast inter-city routes under the Virgin Trains brand.
