Southeastern Trains Class 375 EMU trains, already undergoing a major upgrade and mid-life refresh, are to having their first class compartments, which are currently located at each end of the train, moved to a section in one of the middle carriages.
The movement of the first class seating came about from feedback from passengers and as a result of looking at loading and ticket sales. In total, 735 extra standard class seats will be provided by the work – eight per four-car train.
According to a Southeastern spokesperson, the Class 375 'Electrostars' will be brighter, lighter and more comfortable for our customers after the fleet is re-sprayed both inside and out. In addition to these enhancements, all seating is being removed and deep dry-cleaned and fitted with new seat bases. New carpets and lino are also being laid.

Southeastern said the first train is due back in service at the end of October.
