A time-lapse video on Southern Railway’s website shows the refurbishment of a train carriage condensed to three minutes. The video demonstrates the work involved in the £9m overhaul of the operator’s fleet of Class 377 Electrostar trains. The £9m project, over two and half years, has involved the refurbishment to all 700 carriages in the fleet.

The work began late last year, with four carriages being refurbished each week. “All of the work is being done in-house at our Selhurst Depot to ensure that we get the best value for money and so that the trains aren’t out of service for any longer than necessary,” said a Southern spokesman. “Not only is the interior completely gutted, fixtures and fittings replaced or refurbished then put back, the exterior of the carriage is given a spruce-up by being deep-cleaned and repainted where needed.”
