Scotrail has launched the first two new trains which will run on cross-Glasgow services.
The refurbished trains, which will operate from Glasgow Central Low Level and will have wifi from next month, have been leased as part of a £475million train improvement programme.
They will have better lighting, extra cycle space and at-seat power sockets.
Seven revamped trains will run at a rate of one every few weeks between now and October on routes between Milngavie/Dalmuir and Motherwell/Larkhall/Cumbernauld via Glasgow Central Low Level.

As well as the main works, Carillion will also be lengthening the Cumbernauld station platforms and constructing a turnback facility at Springburn.
