    Today i arrived back at 1747 at Rugeley Trent Valley waited for the 1812 to Birmingham New Street, didn't show up but they put the announcment up at 1811 saying the next train to depart platform 1 is the 1812 London Midland service to Birmingham New Street, then called all the station and then it said the train is formed of 2 coaches and then they apoligise for the reduce number of coaches becuase the 1812 WOULD be 153+170, so i knew that this would be a solo Class 170/5, after the announcement the train arrived but it was 2 CLASS 153s bolted together 153354 & 153356

    So has an Class 170/5 failed?

    Only with the little cabs facing outwards as often happens with us! <(

    (I know the big ends are facing out in the video)

    when i was onboard, they didn't had the two Class 153 connected so travelling to the other unit was off limits!
