With the northern 153's being next to disappear from the network, I thought it would be an idea to create a thread to assist anybody trying to hunt them down!

Just to add to that, Northern hire in a pair of EMR 153s for all Barton line services. They sometimes when work on the back of 2T78 21:17 Cleethorpes - Lincoln Central and occasionally work on the front of a 156 on 5T18 04+42 Lincoln Central - Cleethorpes.

I was thinking of doing that. but for somebody who’s never seen the diagrams before, I would assume it’s quite hard to read (so that’s why I decided on writing it out.) plus I have included extra bits (such as booked partner unit + a list that can be updated when the units start going off lease. Might be an idea for the mods to merge the 2 threads though.

That says it’s booked a 156 or 185. If they start producing dogboxes regularly though, I will add them here!

All the services on the Barton line are worked by a pair of EMR 153s, and pretty much have done since they resumed in May. There was a period of a few weeks when all services were worked by a pair of 153s, one unit from Northern and one unit from EMR.

Services should eventually go over to EMR 156s, but its not known when. Until March, 185s were working the first service (Monday-Saturday) and last service (Monday-Thursday) but haven’t since.

TransPennine crews at Cleethorpes are the only people who work the Barton line and they haven't done any training on 156s for them so the Barton branch will remain operated by 153s for the foreseeable.

On paper yes they are, hired from EMR and TPE respectively, but as yet no crews at Cleethorpes sign 156s, even the trainer's knowledge has lapsed and to the best of my knowledge there is no traction training agreement or plan in place yet. 185s currently can't go to Barton as TPE have no COVID secure plan for local door operation. Thus all Barton line trains are pairs of 153s vice the booked traction for the foreseeable future.

A drastic sign of the Northern 153's impending removal from the network - with the coming May timetable change there will only be three 153 running boards, all of which are coupled to 158's:

I see in the third diagram that it turns back ECS at Greetland junction and starts in service from Brighouse, is this a new development? Don't recall anything starting or terminating at BGH previously (though in the past some services were advertised as terminating there).

The 06:32 from Brighouse has been timetabled since at least December 2019

A pair of Northern 153s were sent out to Cleethorpes a few days ago to work the Barton on Humber branch when the EMR unit broke down.
