R3575 Hornby East Midlands Class 153 new DMU

Originally built as a two-car Class 155 “Super Sprinter” by British Leyland between 1987 and 1988, using a construction technique similar to that used in the Pacers, pre-formed panels were riveted together, creating a lightweight body on a welded floor assembly. Introduction was rapid, but teething troubles with the door mechanisms soon emerged and consequently the fleet was taken out of use and modified, with the Class 156 units taking over the duties.
