The dark blue and pale grey 'Inter7City' livery features large silhouettes of landmarks in the seven cities of Scotland.

Before relivery, the power cars were in the plain blue livery of First Great Western.

Other worked carried out on the power cars include decommissioning of the Great Western ATP equipment, fitting Forward Facing CCTV cameras, and Traction Interlock (to work with slide-door carriages).

The 'Admitted' date is when the Loco (Power car) arrived at Brush Loughborough, the 'Released' date is when it departed from Loughborough.

At end of December 2018, 26 of 54 power cars repainted. (Feb 2019, 30 of 54)
