Class 150

The Class 150 and its derivatives are now a major part of Britain’s commuter network, and also play an integral role in many of the rural branch lines and railway dependent settlements in connecting them to the rest of the country. Efficient, plucky and flexible, the Class 150’s have always been a reliable instrument in the British Rail scene.
