5 3-car and 4 2-car (ex TPX)
2-car units are to be made up to a 3-car formation upon receipt of the surplus centre cars from the SWT units.
A path was in for 158799 to move to Tyseley yesterday. Not sure if it actually took place.
I know about the 159/1s, I'm not on about those. I'm sure there was a mention in a mag about SWT taking on more 158s.
'The identites of the 11 Class 158s due to transfer to South West Trains from First TransPennine during 2007 (see RE128 ) have now been revealed, Nos. 158737/42-4/73/5/9/81 and 158801/2/8. Of note is the inclusion of 158808, this having been removed from the Class 159/1 programme, which as a result will now only total eight units, Nos. 159101-8.
