Avanti unveils refurbished Pendolinos – Business Traveller

Some of you may remember our report regarding Avanti West Coast and its plans to refurbish its fleet of 56 Pendolinos.

Today the first of these refurbished trains operated the 0505 between Manchester and London Euston.

According to Avanti West Coast travellers will be able to experience more comfortable seats, a revamped shop and better on-board catering.

All told the investment will cost £117 million and these 56 trains will be refurbished by 2024.

In the meantime that single unit (a second will join next month) will be deployed on the main business routes from London Euston which include Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh (via West Coast Mainline) and Glasgow.

Avanti West Coast has produced two videos which show both the standard and first class interiors.
