@Maersk.146
Shot answer is yes, here is an artists impression how it will look when completed https://www.railadvent.co.uk/2019/01...html I much prefer the latest GBRf livery.
Just to added yellow nose's have been removed from from livery designs to new stock being introduced because with the introduction of high intensity LED head lights. The yellow nose is not necessary to warn the approach of trains to track maintenance personnel.

Arrived in the UK from CAF Spain by ship unloaded at Portbury Bristol then on route to Manchester to be prepared for service with TransPennine Express.
The coaches are so new that they are still wrapped in polythene sheeting
