I mean, is this refurbishment going to take place with all Piccadilly line trains soon? After viewing the pics, I think it looks amazing!
Well, I spotted this on my way home yesterday, so clearly they are starting to retrofit Barman moquette for ad-hoc replacement, whereas before they were just using plain blue for the perch seats.
it's hard to tell from that picture, but has the moquette been replaced or has the barman simply been stuck on top of the old one? I've noticed a few trains with patch repairs using barman/square moquette glued on top
