Hi,

Not sure if it is, but spotted an unusual (for this area) train whilst waiting for my train at Tyseley. It said "Chiltern Railways C1" on the side. Googling it bought up Class 121.

If it isn't a 121, anybody able to help out identifying it?

Ta.

Chiltern Railways have had work done on one of their bubblecars they use on the shuttle service between Princes Risborough and Aylesbury during peak times on weekdays. They have a second bubblecar which they have been using, while this one has been having an overhaul at Tyseley.

Cheers. I've never seen one before, it was driving me mad trying to find out what it was.

I Was lucky enough yesterday, Friday, to travel on the the Green Bubble Car (ending in number 34) from Aylesbury to Princes R on the 1550 service. I was not expecting that and was pleased and surprised. I had a good day yesterday on CR, had a regular 2 car unit (Albeit with hard seats) on the 1157 from Marylebone, then the Bubble, followed by another 2 car to High Wycombe where I waited for the 1712 Hrs non stop back to London which was I think MK 3 stock, loco hauled silver train in new livery. (Approaching Marylebone, I did notice a 5 card MK set, 2 old virgin coaches and 3 Wrexham & Shropshire blue & white Stock) All in all a good day out, tks CR. :D
