TRAINS serving stations in Crow country are being enhanced as part of a £31million investment in rolling stock.

Rail operator First Capital Connect (FCC) has announced that it’s fleet of Class 365 trains, which travel on the Great Northern route between Cambridge and London King’s Cross, are to be given fresh interiors and better accessibility for people with disabilities, as well as undergoing extensive maintenance to ensure their continued reliability.

The work will be funded by Eversholt Rail Group, which leases the trains to FCC, and is part of a £31million investment across the network.

FCC managing director David Statham said: “Everything our passengers tell us shows that a clean and comfortable travelling environment is important to them. This major investment in one of our biggest fleets of trains will give us just that – a brighter, new-look train cabin with better information and better facilities for people with disabilities.”
