Following around 15 years use since her last refurbishment, 59503 (called Nina) has been overhauled again and, we're sure you agree, the difference is quite something. The photo to the right shows the before image whilst the after image illustrates the news item. The interior was the focus of this refurbishment with the old interior panelling replaced in new wood on the upper sections whilst the lower sections have been upholstered. The old seating has been removed and replaced with seating similar to that found in a BR Mark 1 carriage.
Passengers have been kind enough to share their thoughts with us and have praised the workmanship involved (all completed in house) and that the style is much improved!!
