push button rather than a handle for the inter-car doors

I always liked that way of opening them. I think a button is not as ergonomic.
I noticed the other day how well the Tangas stack up against their later brethren. Thanks to the interior upgrades, I think the average commuter would barely notice the difference over an A set or an Oscar. The M sets might stand out due to their seating and vocal drives.
Renk Doromat. Make that engine work! :)

Here is an image of a Tangara Technology upgrade in progress.

Changes I note:

push button rather than a handle for the inter-car doors
change of the saloon seating to fold up for wheelchair access
addition of handrail and help points (incomplete) above the saloon seating, similar to a Waratah
move of help points to the saloon side of the vestibule rather than the upper / lower deck side
red upholstered seating on one side of saloon signifying for aged / disability customers

Here is a good pic of a recently refurbished car for comparison:

The prototype of the TTU is due this month (October, 2017)


So they're gunna make the Saloon seats significantly less comfortable. Wow. Good one
:D
