    it is clearly a file photo used for illustrative purposes.

    Could it actually be an East Midlands Trains unit with the company logo photoshopped?

    Possibly, but why go to that bother? Also, isn't the cheatline slightly different on EMT?

    Have SWT leased units to EMT before?

    Were the 159s not refurbished at Doncaster around 2007/8, that shot looks like a location on the ECML so could be a unit returning after its refurb?

    It looks vaguely like somewhere between Stoke and Helpston (Little Bytham?) on the ECML, so quite possibly one of the units that has been hired previously working to Norwich. I don't think it's a recent photo - doesn't look like the current SWT unit on hire.

    A quick check of the Alamy stock photo website reveals it's 158890 at Peterborough on the ECML.

    Probably taken during the EMT 158 refurb program when an SWT unit was brought in to cover. These units were rotated every few weeks as well.
