Having been stood down from duties with EMR, these HST power cars have today made the trip from Neville Hill TMD to Ely Papworth Sidings for storage and an uncertain future

Northern Trains

150003 (ex 150116) / 150209

This is another of the newly formed 3 car Class 150's for Northern. 150003 has been made up of both coaches from 150116 with coach 57209, from 150209, becoming the centre carriage. This does mean that unit 150209 has now lost both of it's carriages and therefore no longer exists as an active unit (Thanks to "507021" for this gen supplied via Gen Submit)
