TfL typically outsources fleet-wide rolling-stock refurbishments to suppliers such as Bombardier, Alstom or Wabtec. However, on this occasion, they wished to change the status quo and develop their own in-house capability.

The Day In The Life Of (DITLO) illustrations helped to explain, step-by-step, their vision of how they would refurbish each of the 85 trains in 40 days. Shown here is an overview (executive summary) of the process.

The full 21-page document breaks it down to a granular level and includes a full list of the staff required and the train movements, as well as each piece of work.

An invaluable piece of work, which has saved countless hours trying to explain a complex process to potential suppliers, stakeholders & operators..”
