Number of vehicles: 20

Details:
A 20-train upgrade program was initiated in July 2016, allowing for a 10-year extension.
This concerned the generation 1 train sets (301 to 320), the oldest ones dating back to 1984, whose initial life had been estimated at 30 years.

Nature of work:

  • Replacement of all floor mats, defective floors, local asbestos removal, complete interior painting, overhaul of seats and partial exterior body painting with replacement of all adhesives.
  • All rubberized glazing and gaskets have been replaced. New athermic glazing has also been installed for the comfort of travellers.
  • The cockpit desks were modified slightly to improve ergonomics.
  • Finally, the panels for the lining of the intercirculation (of noisy origin), have been replaced by rubber bellows made to measure, which also contribute to the improvement of the comfort of the passengers.
