type Press release



First Capital Connect has announced a £2m investment in its fleet of trains that operate on the Great Northern route.

The money will be spent on improvements to the interiors of all trains that operate on the route. In particular, the work will focus on upgrading the seating and flooring.

Elaine Holt, Managing Director, First Capital Connect, said: Whilst reliability is good on this route, we recognise that our fleet would benefit from an upgrade to further improve the journey experience of our customers.

This £2m investment is in addition to the investments we have so far outlined for the franchise and demonstrates our commitment to ensure our trains meet the needs of our customers.

The work will be co-ordinated at First Capital Connects Hornsey depot, starting in March. It will take a week to complete each train and all work will be finished by the end of 2007.
