Whose train is it anyway?
Whose train is it anyway?
This class 322 electric unit appears to be operated by Northern (see SE2933 : Northern Rail at Leeds for context). The smaller writing proclaims it to be a "Serco and Abellio joint venture". Abellio is a Netherlands Railways subsidiary. But the bright sunshine shows the previous operator's name - Scotrail - beneath the layer of purple paint.
