I saw (and rode) 158755 with its newly-refurbished interior on a Leeds-Carlisle service today, so I assume that it returned from Holbeck recently.

Another planet...
Had a 3-car with the new moquette earlier, sat in a priority seat in the middle car. Looked a quality refurbishment, seats were firm but comfortable, all the fixtures felt solid and the general finish seemed top notch. Hopefully a sign of things to come on Northern. Just a shame I was only on for a few minutes!

Think the unit was 158754, but could be misremembering.

Nh to Wolverton has run reported above as a 156.
The return Wolverton to NH is on its way some 65min late. I wasnt aware of any Northern dmus at Wolverton.
Unit numbers anyone.
Thanks

I doubt they would send a 156 on a 300 mile trip for an exam. I am going to put a guess that something was found that was wrong at Newton Heath and its gone back there to be fixed under the works warranty

Don’t forget that Angel Trains 150s have been going to Wolverton as well, with only Porterbrook units having PRM associated works done there.

Todays 28 Aug Doncaster to Newton Heath does not appear to have run again.
I've list count of how many times this path has been booked but not run.
Presumably ex Wabtec Kilnarnock then Doncaster 150 268 which is the last Portabrook 150 to PRM trying to return.
I think it first went to Kilmarnock last Nov moving to Doncaster by road in Jun. Quite a time to be not in revenue service.
