Caledonian Sleeper gets double beds and a new look in £150m revamp
London to Scotland service will offer en-suite cabins with sleek new styling, as sleeper trains experience a resurgence
The sleeper train, beloved of thriller writers and art directors, is making a comeback in Britain. Serco, the operator of the Caledonian Sleeper night trains connecting London and Scotland, has revealed details of a £150m revamp, including en-suite cabins with double beds.
Serco took over the Caledonian Sleeper franchise in 2015 promising major improvements, and part-funded by the Scottish government. The company’s chairman, Peter Strachan, has said its aim is to re-establish the Caledonian as “a symbol of Scotland”.
