Just in time for the Olympics, it looks like the Heathrow Express is scoring some swanky new trains. In case you arenít familiar with the train service, the Heathrow Express connects travelers and tourists from London-Heathrow right over to Paddington Station close to the cityís center. Itís a little expensive at £18 each way, but, if you need to get from the airport into London proper in just 15 minutes itís pretty much your best option.
The new trains cars are designed to look a little more like a rolling business class lounge rather than just a nonstop commuter train. In total, theyíre spending around £16 million on upgrading interiors, seats, and everything elseóboth inside and out. The updates started rolling down the track earlier this month, and things will continue to be refreshed through the first part of next year.
