NORTHERN has begun a refresh and refurbishment programme on its fleet of 16 Class 333 EMUs.
The work continues the refurbishment on Class 158s and 170s. The first unit to be refurbished is No. 333013, completed at the end of February. Following this is 333001 with 333011, due out by the end of March. Externally, the set has lost the red West Yorkshire Metro colour scheme, with all carriages now painted in Northern’s steel blue & white livery.
Inside, the carriages have been fully refurbished with a new two-colour blue seat moquette, LED lighting, new flooring and refaced grab rails. Undertaking the work for Northern is Chrysalis Rail.
