Myleene adds a touch of Klass to Virgin Trains’ stylish new fleet

Published on : Monday, January 30, 2017

unnamed (2)Myleene Klass brought a touch of class to celebrations at London King’s Cross Station to mark the completion of Virgin Trains’ ‘total rehaul’ of its east coast fleet. The classically trained musician dazzled surprised commuters with a live performance on a baby grand piano before joining customers on board the inaugural journey of the final train to receive a stylish makeover.

 

The moment marks the completion of a £40 million investment by Virgin Trains in its entire fleet of east coast trains, which included luxurious leather seats and mood lighting in First Class, stunning red cloth seats in Standard, and new carpets and stylish fittings throughout. A total of 410 coach interiors have been revamped and 24,427 seats replaced, adding extra comfort for customers. Another £100m of investment is still to come around stations and technology.

 

David Horne, Managing Director at Virgin Trains on the east coast, said: “Since we launched services on the east coast in 2015 we have committed more than £40 million to improving our existing fleet, to give our customers the best possible experience when they travel with us. It gives me great pleasure to announce that we have completed our refurbishment programme, and passed another milestone on our journey towards totally transforming travel for our customers on the east coast. We’re absolutely delighted that Myleene was able to join us for this special day and help make it even more memorable.”
