If you haven't been on board yet, here's a look at the €15.3 million refurbishment and the improved customer facilities on the Dublin-Belfast Enterprise service.
The refurbishment programme has been financed through the European Union’s INTERREG IVA Programme, which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) with support from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) in Ireland, and Northern Ireland’s Department for Regional Development.
The renewal of the fleet sees customer facilities, livery and appearance, and internal systems renewed to deliver a service which looks and feels like a modern new train with the emphasis on comfort, service and value. Customers will benefit from:
- Transformation of the interior of the train, including seating; power sockets at every seat; plush carpets; new tables and lightings; new signage
- Improved catering area and Enterprise Menu, with table service in the dining car for Enterprise Class (standard) passengers, and waiter service for Enterprise Plus
- New on-board systems, including audio-visual passenger information; new public address system; enhanced CCTV; new Train Management system; and an electronic seat reservation system
- a modern new look with a stylish livery and a transformation of the interior of the train
