DDZ / NID : Doubledecker Zone / New Intercity Doubledecker
This doubledecker train consists of DD-AR stop-train coaches and mDDM engines that were revised and upgraded in 2011 to become intercity trains. The interior was completely renewed to cater for two different types of passenger. Upstairs is designed for reading and working - the 'quiet zones' - and the seats are arranged more privately. Downstairs is designed for more public interaction and groups with seats arranged more face-to-face as well as the informal L-shaped "lounge sofas".
Externally the three separate front windows of the mBk and ABvk wagons have been replaced with a single large windscreen, behind which the old three-window frame still exists. There are also two new electrically driven wipers and sprayers, and the cab side windows have been closed off.
The sides of the train sport the blue-on-yellow intercity colours familiar to the VIRM trains, with the blue stripes following the lines of the floors in each coach. High and low seating floors with mid-level entry floors at each end. The missing lower stripe of the mBk engine (no lower floor) sets this train set apart from the similar VIRM.
