It isn^t every day that you see Class 365s on the WCML but, on 28 May 2019, two sets travelled south on a move from Glasgow Works to Crewe. The rear unit is 365537 and 57312 was leading as the train passed Leyland. Unfortunately the ^happy trains^ may not be happy for much longer as they are currently ^out of work^.

Acting on information received, m^lud, I detected 230004 on the 16.09 to Bedford at the aforementioned station. Further detective work yielded the intelligence that the 16.20 to Bletchley would be a 153, so I fled the scene to get home ASAP (notice the stationary truck on the M1 in the background; it was a long journey). I also overheard a passenger complaining that an 06.20 service had been cancelled - the 230s may be in the ^bedding in^ phase. Notice the shiny metal window frame where a centre mounted door pair has been removed.
