Northern has taken delivery of two Class 170 trains at its Neville Hill depot near Leeds.
The trains, which previously provided services north of the border for ScotRail, will undergo a full refurbishment and features available to customers will include power sockets and air-conditioning.
A new type of train for Northern services, training on the Class 170s is expected to start in the next few weeks on a route between Holbeck near Leeds and Nottingham.
They will provide services between York, Harrogate and Leeds from May.
The delivery of these trains is another milestone in Northerns programme of train upgrades as the train operator invests millions in improving its existing fleet and phasing out its older Pacer style trains.
