    Was on the ScotRail 16:46 Stirling - Edinburgh this evening, iirc it was 3×158. Same story two Sundays ago.

    The longest I've worked in service was 3 158s and a 156 for 8 cars from Liverpool to Nottingham as the previous train was cancelled, driver didn't sign via Earlestown.

    I dimly recall the maximum I ever worked was an 6-car 150+150+153+153 on a Sunday once.

    My own record is a 7 (150+153+158+158). I was only supposed to pass on it, but it was booked for a Holyhead guard and they don't sign 153s any more so we swapped roles.
