315826 at Shenfield the terminus for this service.
Built at York in 4 car sets, each set is able to seat 318 passengers.
A refurbishment programme commenced from mid 2004, when National Express East Anglia (then 'one' Railway) contracted Bombardier to carry out the refurbishment of all 61 units, starting with the ex-First Great Eastern examples. The low-back 3+2 seating is retained, so the capacity stays the same.
The Class 315 units replaced the life-expired Class 306 units.
