Sleeper sneak peek
SCOTLAND’s transport minister was one of the first to see the potential results of Caledonia Sleeper’s £150 million make over.
Humza Yousaf MSP boarded a prototype of new sleeper train carriages at a warehouse near Edinburgh.
More than £150m is being invested in the new fleet, which is part funded by a £60m capital grant from the Scottish Government.
Spanish company CAF will oversee the build which is now under way.
The service with the new carriages is expected to start running in 2018.
Several new features have been included such as double beds, hotel-style key card entry system, more accessible rooms, reclining seat, upgraded panels for phone and gadget charging, and wifi.
