Seems like the Overground 378s are having a refresh. New seat moquettes and

a
slightly different external paint/vinyl job. Looks quite nice.


How old are they?


There were several orders, so the ages vary. The oldest carriages have
been in service just over 10 years, the youngest only four.


A rare example of a decent train - looks nice inside and out, comfortable and
with decent acceleration (when the drivers can be bothered). Naturally this
situration couldn't last so we now have the fugly, expensive and late 710s.
