Notes:
These trains are due to be replaced by 46 new trains due to be built by Stadler for introduction by 2023.
4001, 4002, 4040 and 4083 were not included as part of a refurbishment project in 2012-2015. Their use is limited and they can only work with each other and not any of refurbished vehicles.
4022 was sent to Bristol for repairs in July 2017 having been involved in an accident just outside South Gosforth Depot. The damage to the articulation section is believed to be severe enough to make it uneconomical to conduct repairs and it is likely to be scrapped. It remains at Barton Hill Depot in Bristol.

New Stadler trains

46 new trains are due to be built by Stadler for introduction by 2023. Numbering and further details awaited.
