The Department for Transport has issued a dispensation for trains that needed extra modifications to make them accessible for those with extra mobility needs.
The dispensation has been sent to Angel Trains, the owner of the Class 317 trains which are leased to Greater Anglia.
This means that they can continue to operate past the deadline, which was 1st January 2020.
The extra mods included priority seating, door control arrangements, and handrail colour contrast amongst others.
The fleet of Class 317s that needed the extra modifications are below: 317337, 317338, 317339, 317340, 317341, 317342, 317343, 317344, 317347, 317348, 317501, 317502, 317504, 317506, 317507,317508, 317510, 317511, 317512, 317513, 317515, 317881, 317882, 317883, 317884, 317885, 317886
