UK: Wabtec Rail Scotland is converting 15 Mk III catering vehicles owned by leasing firm Angel Trains into standard class cars under a project to add capacity to First Great Western's HST inter-city trainsets.

The catering vehicles require extensive work, including stripping out existing interiors and kitchen equipment, treating corrosion and the cutting of full-size apertures in place of the small windows in the service areas of the vehicles.

New doors will replace previous emergency-only exits, and 84 standard class seats will be installed.
