Improvement works completed on Chiltern Railways silver set trains

Chiltern Railways have welcomed back the last of their silver set trains which had been away for improvement works. From late July, each of their four silver set trains were sent away one at a time to undergo heavy maintenance work and improvements to meet accessibility standards. 

The modifications that customers will see onboard include new display screens throughout carriages which display journey updates, stopping pattern, news and weather information, as well as the installation of new priority seats nearest to the carriage doors.  

Seating closer to the doors with more leg room will be beneficial to those with reduced mobility, while the screens will enable customers to track their current journey and view real time station departures for those who are catching connecting trains. 

Alan Riley, Customer Services Director said: “It is important to us at Chiltern that we make our existing trains accessible for everyone and these improvements will make a big difference to passengers with reduced mobility. We hope that all customers travelling on board our silver-set services will enjoy the new display screens and the useful information that they provide.”
