Class of its own

156 in a Class of its own:

Yes, in a class of its own the 156. While out on a social outing, I found myself waiting for the next train on a rather cold platform surrounded by snow. Looking for entertainment I pull out my camera and snapped a few shots of the shuttle train that runs between Nuneaton and Coventry.

Waiting at Coventry Arena Station:

After attending a Wasps vs London Irish game played at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry we had around 45 minutes to talk and catchup on the game. The weather in the past week had been horrendous. Travel had been disrupted by the “Beast from the East”.¬† As only one train runs on the Branch line between Nuneaton and Coventry, we could watch the train we needed to catch stop at platform 2, and expect a return call 21 minutes later.

Metro Cammell:

Not being a avid train spotter I took the opportunity snap the local shuttle, and research it when I got home.
