New windscreens for Hitachi 385s to be fitted in Scotland [Rail]

Date: 18/04/2018

Once a final design for new windscreens has been approved for ScotRail Class 385s, the modifications will be carried out at Knorr-Bremse Rail Services at Springburn. The electric multiple units, built by Hitachi, are currently unable to enter traffic after problems were encountered with the drivers view during mileage accumulation testing.

A full-size mock up of the interior of ScotRail's new class 385s has been erected at Edinburgh Waverley's east end, seen here on 10 February 2016. This features first and standard class seating.

Passengers can look forward to more leg room, larger tables and windows, and power sockets.

So, not a modern art installation then.
