Take a look inside the brand new Enterprise train which was launched today.
Chris Conway, Translink Group chief executive, says the service looks and feels like a modern new train with the emphasis on comfort, service and value.
Portadown is one of the main stops in Northern Ireland for the cross-border service.
“Customers will first notice the train’s striking modern new look with a stylish purple, red and grey livery. Stepping on board, the transformation is incredible with vibrant, eye-catching new colour schemes and new Enterprise and Enterprise Plus branding on board,” he said.
“The carriages boast attractive seating with power sockets, plush carpets, new tables and lighting as well as finer details like new signage and internal fixtures and fittings – we’re confident our customers will be very pleased with the stylish interiors and improved passenger features. Once all trains are completed we will also have our new electronic seat reservation displays operating.
“Another exciting development is the new Enterprise Menu offering customers an appetising selection of fresh food and drink. Enterprise Class passengers will be able to choose from either a trolley service or visit the new dining car that now includes ‘sit-in’ table service. There’s also a waiter service for Enterprise Plus customers to enjoy delicious meals from the comfort of their seat – a truly unique dining experience!
“We also remain focussed on good value tickets and customers can take advantage of web-fares from as little as £10 day return. We are encouraging business customers to pre-purchase new carnet tickets for savings of up 38 per cent compared to the cost of regular single tickets.
“Travelling by Enterprise is not just about reaching your destination, it’s about the unique journey experience. We want to offer our customers a relaxing way to escape to Dublin, avoiding the hassle of traffic congestion and car parking.
