Rail replacement bus cab
Yep, the question is exactly as I'm asking. I went to Leeds in 2004 and travelled to Bradford on a red Metro 158 and returned on a Regional Railways or ScotRail 156 (Can't remember). I'm planning another trip around Leeds and Sheffield, to get away from Electro land and chasing locos for a day. What classes will I find and will there be a fair variety of liveries? P.s is that LTS 317 still about?

Full list for Leeds and Sheffield. (L= Leeds only, S= Sheffield only)

Pacers (142, 144)
Sprinters (150, 153, 155 (L), 156, 158 )
HSTs, 91&mark 4s (L)
220/1/2
321 (L), 333 (L)
60s and 66s, sometimes 67s as well
185 through Leeds only at the minute, but the should (?!?) start running through Sheffield any day now.

I'm pretty sure not all the 185s are going onto South Transpennine - there are around 4-5 running now, so I guess TPE won't transfer them all straight away.

No. They're 321s. Geared for 100mph running wth 4 coaches, unlike 320s which are geared for 75mph running and only have 3 coaches.
