Knorr-Bremse RailServices in Wolverton is undertaking the C6 overhaul of 19 Class 313 EMUs which Beacon Rail leases to Govia Thameslink Railway for use on Southern’s Coastway services,
The C6 programme includes work on the door mechanisms, air systems and bodywork, as well as accessibility improvements and fitting LED lighting.
