As well as the...
My favourite British DMU class is..
The Class 158 (excluding refurbished Haymarket units which are just awful ).
Yes, alright 170s aren't too bad either and I do like an un-refurbed 156 now you mention it, something about that rev-up
My favourite EMU class has to be...
Class 314s (why not? , especially as those veritable, veterans of Weegieland enter into their twilight months. May you rest in peace dear, old friends )
Goodbye 314 212
e300 Class 373 TMST Eurostars, best TGV-type high-speed train ever, smooth as silk.
I also love...
Class 390 Pendolinos (the accceleration and tilt are impressive, it must be said )
I particulary dislike...
GWR Class 166s, probably 165s too at that
I also like...
SNCB/NMBS AM96s, quite decent medium-distance InterCity EMUs really
I'm not so keen on...
XC 220s, not a bad train as such but they could've made the interior so much better.
My favourite TOC is...
Probably Virgin Trains, though I'm getting progressively keener on LNER. Historically - definitely GNER.
My all-time favourite livery is...
InterCity Swallow, but I also like Virgin's older Red/Black livery.
For modern liveries...
Current NIR one is nice, a stylish blend of Blue and Silver
Newer TPEx is pretty stylish too
ScotRail 7 Cities, suits the HSTs pretty well
My favourite foreign train is...
The Italian FS ETR 500

Yellow, Blue and Gold
I particularly dislike...
Weak coffee or just generally rubbish coffee
Earl Grey tea
I especially like...
Sticky Toffee Pudding (who doesn't, eh? )
Pears (probably my favourite fruit)
Peach juice (I don't know why but it's so good )
My personal areas of interest in railways include...
Current events (basically just what's going on)
Timetables (present and historic)
Speeds (bit of speed freak )
Other hobbies and interests...
Rangers FC (when they win )
Thanks for stopping by
