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.
