It missed out South Parkway, Widnes and Warrington Central: http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/C80467/2017/04/08

In the early days of of the First/Kelios TPE franchise there was an 8 car 158 working from Lime Street on the last TPE service the day after Liverpool won the Champions League! It had a debranded CT livered 158 in between 2 x 3 car Northern Spirit livered 158s.

Tough on any regular punters. Certainly Ilkeston cannot take six cars.

A 153 with a 158 is a lot better than a 158 on its own , at least there is some additional seating .

I think he mentioned it as it is very rare for a 153 to work this service

RE: East Midlands Trains
Are East Midlands 153's going to be modified to the new standards for disabled people or will they be reformed back into a 155 to be able to pass the new regulations .
