Class 357/3 Trains
Operated by c2c
c2c Metro Trains have received the same refurbishment as the other Class 357 trains in the fleet but will receive further improvements:
We know our trains are getting busier, our new train design we’ve unveiled today for our shorter-distance peak trains, which provide more space and will help more passengers making short trips to get on-board. We’d really like feedback on this new look, so we want passengers to try the new train and tell us what they think.
Julian Drury, Managing director of c2c
By refurbishing these trains, passengers will experience a more clean, bright and comfortable journey.
c2c announced (April 2016) they have come to an agreement with the Department for Transport (DfT) for an extra 17 trains. These will be brand new class 387/3 four carriage trains - similar to those in use on the Thameslink and Gatwick Express lines.
These will be used to ease over crowding on some of the busiest services across the c2c network.
