Why do TOC's such as Scotrail & LM under-utilise their respective SuperSprinter fleets? If Scotrail/Northern gave just one class 156 to East Midlands Trains then it would allow them to significantly improve the overcrowding on the Crewe to Derby route. They could use the 156 on a 153 diagram on the route and use the released 153 to double-up another 153 diagram on the route. If London Midland gave just one 153 to Greater Anglia that could greatly improve their capacity issues around Norwich. Any ideas on this? I'll stop sounding like a water aid appeal and open the discussion.
