What is a London Midland City Class 153 unit doing in Bristol?
An unexpected sight at the NW edge of Bristol Temple Meads station was a Class 153 Super Sprinter single car diesel number 153333. London Midland City run trains primarily on the West Coast Main Line from London Euston and in the West Midlands region.
The explanation is that this unit and unit 153325 have been acquired by First Great Western for services in the SW of England. One observer described the green livery as 'eye-catching'. It certainly caught my eye!
The building behind the diesel unit is Hotel Ibis. LinkExternal link
