Three of the Class 172 trains used on the Gospel Oak to Barking line have been transferred to their leaseholder, West Midlands Trains. The trains are currently undergoing modifications to allow them to run on the West Midlands Trains’ routes, including vital adaptations to install accessible toilets. The modification of these units will then be followed by a schedule of driver training.
