Could decide on what thread to post this one.

Transport for Wales posted on their social media accounts this morning photos of at least two completed stadler flirt units which were due to start testing.

I'm getting different information now on whether these are the class 231 units or the class 756 tri-modes and after all that I've heard they going to use class 197s on the maesteg to Cheltenham service instead of the class 231s.

Anyone on this group able to tell use just which flirt units these are as I thought the class 231s were being delivered first.

I will attach the link later as I can't access my Facebook app at the moment

There's a sticker inside the cab of the righthand unit in the second picture showing it's vehicle 381001 of unit 231001

They look neat though, and I think I can see a white LED destination display on the left hand unit (which I personally prefer to orange!)

Why not start a new one "TFW Stadler Flirts".
